16 Wotton Road is a vacant industrial building in Cricklewood totalling 12,500 sq ft. It was formerly an interwar aircraft factory occupied by Handley Page. Planning Permission was secured to refurbish the existing building to create a well-designed, contemporary and desirable workspace at ground floor level with a single lateral apartment above with outdoor space.
It is intended that the building will be highly sustainable as the developer has recognized that by designing and remodelling the existing, they can greatly reduce its environmental impact.
The open plan office is of square shape with natural light from crittall glass windows that run along the North and East walls. The flooring is polished concrete giving an even brighter appearance.
Other benefits will include a fresh air heat recovery system, LED mood lighting, infrared heating, ceiling trays, male & female WC's with shower & kitchenette.
In addition there is a covered triple height courtyard accessed via an electronic roller shutter, which is available by separate negotiation. This could be used as a breakout area, to unload goods or for manufacturing and exhibition space. It could also accommodate off-street car parking, although “on street business permits” will also be available.
