Our renovation works of the 1908 warehouses showcase the previous paper production factories original features, including cast-iron columns, exposed brickwork and impressive vaulted ceilings. We added a plant room, a new lift shaft and car, and a fifth-floor level of tenant space with new daylighting introduced to maximise the lettable area.

Blending the building's heritage with exposed services throughout and contemporary finishes, 'Underwood Works' has been re-imagined to provide over 26k sq. ft of modern warehouse office space with a diverse and vibrant community on its doorstep.
