The Whitechapel Building, Whitechapel – Projects
- Fletcher Priest Architects
Elliott Wood are collaborating with Derwent London, Fletcher Priest Architects and ISG on the refurbishment of the former RBS office in Whitechapel.
A new steel framed atrium comprising of cantilever moment frames at first floor level is to replace the existing low quality lean-to side extension on the side of an 8 storey RC framed building.
The works include refurbishment of the existing basement below the new atrium, including forming a new staircase from the street down to basement level to create an open and appealing entrance into an exhibition space.
During the design, Elliott Wood were involved in a detailed discussions and approvals process with London Underground Ltd due to the proximity of underground tunnels which run adjacent to the scheme under Whitechapel High St.
