Buckley Gray Yeoman starts former Burberry factory refurb
£30m project will see factory turned into mixed-use scheme
Buckley Gray Yeoman has started work on the £30 million refurbishment of the former Burberry factory in Hackney, east London.
The project will see the building turned into a mixed-use development of residential and commercial units.
A two-storey rooftop extension, designed as a white rendered box with zinc detailing, is also included.
Matt Yeoman, director of BuckleyGrayYeoman, said: “With the demand for warehouse-style living high as ever, this project is a great opportunity to create a new destination in Hackney.
“Having worked on a neighbouring project for the client, we know the area well and are delighted to see this building take shape and its significant past reinterpreted.”
The project is due for completion in February 2014.
