The historic Fish & Coal buildings, situated alongside the Regent’s Canal in King’s Cross, have been redeveloped using complex glazing systems from Wrightstyle and will become the creative headquarters of the Jamie Oliver Group.
Originally part of Lewis Cubitt’s design for the goods yard, the Fish & Coal buildings date back to 1851 and were used as offices to monitor the flow of freight. The buildings have been derelict since the 1980s after being near destroyed by a fire.
A total of ten Jansen Arte, thermally broken and radiused head composite steel windows were installed by Wrightstyle, with every arched opening laser scanned to ensure the correct fit.
The advanced steel and aluminium glazing specialist also designed and fabricated thermally-broken steel sub-frames for the development to strict aesthetic specifications.
The project is due for completion in the next few months and is being undertaken by David Morley Architects and BAM Construction. The upper floors of the buildings will become the creative centre for the Jamie Oliver Group, whilst the lower-level arches will become a new restaurant.
The Fish & Coal restoration is part of a wider regeneration to the King’s Cross area, which will see 50 new buildings, 1900 homes, 20 new streets and 10 new public parks and squares. Wrightstyle has also been involved in the redevelopment of the iconic frontage of King’s Cross station and on adjoining office projects associated with the main station.
