BLACK & WHITE BUILDING The Black & White Building is a new _pop-up_ office space for The Office Group, an innovative provider of flexible, design-led shared office spaces. The comprehensive refurbishment of a historic but dilapidated former furniture factory at 74 Rivington Street, has created 11,000 sq.ft. of stylish, flexible workspace over three storeys in the heart of the Shoreditch Conservation Area. BuckleyGrayYeoman_s sensitive, light touch approach has put a contemporary twist on the existing Victorian building: retaining and emphasising the best of the original fabric and making that the starting point for a stylish interior fit-out that celebrates the edgy character and energy of Shoreditch. The Black & White Building_s striking, contrasting styling – black on the outside, white on the inside _ was conceived to provide flexible, bright workspaces that act as a _blank canvas_ for local creative SMEs and freelancers. BuckleyGrayYeoman_s interior design shows off the textures of the original brickwork and timber beams and adopts a simple palette of exposed timber and black painted metal. Industrial materials and finishes such as plywood, Stirling OSB, powder-coated metal and grey floor paint have been used alongside a bright yellow accent colour to allude to the building_s former life as a factory. As with all of The Office Group_s buildings, it was ensured that the furniture and fittings were sourced from local suppliers and contractors. The new interiors have been designed to make the most of the building_s large windows and high ceilings. Generously sized offices with shared facilities on each floor, along with informal ground floor break-out areas and an Office Group ClubRoom space, encourage collaborative working and a campus environment.
