- John Steinbeck. (via empiregrotesk)
When Emrys Architects was commissioned for the reconstruction and extension of offices occupying two terraced Georgian town houses on Great James Street in Bloomsbury (London, UK), the client (GMS Estates) happily embraced the architects’ vision of contemporary architecture. GMS Estates envisioned a space which would break out of the mold of confined working spaces, allowing employees to easily communicate whilst retaining a degree of delineation between departments. With this being said, the architects installed a new two-storey structure at the rear of the two buildings (all the while retaining and enhancing the grandeur of the listed terrace) in order to create additional space, improve circulation between existing workspaces whilst creating a dramatic transition from old to new. The new structure is on two levels and is accessible from both the lower ground and ground floors.
