In 2001 the building was bought by Derwent London and underwent a radical transformation that made it the property we know today. It was renamed the Tea Building and refurbished as flexible office space by architects Allford Hall Monaghan Morris.
The plans were careful to retain the essential character of the building, by exposing its structural detail and keeping many of its original features intact. Throughout you'll find exposed brick and concrete columns, highly polished floors, original timber lift doors, cobbles and metal-framed windows. There are also now nearly 50 different workspaces, none the same size and shape as another, with an eclectic mix of creative companies all working together in this unique community.
