Black & White Building

The Black & White Building was launched in January 2023 to universal acclaim from the UK architectural community. It is the latest in stylish, flexible workspaces from leading co-working provider The Office Group.
A game-changing structure, designed by Waugh Thistleton Architects and Daytrip Studios, it showcases and celebrates the use of timber in contemporary urban architecture on every level, as well as being the tallest mass-timber commercial building in Central London, the first for over 400 years.

Our work: A CPM project which makes extensive use of timber through every aspect of the design and construction. The curtain wall façade is a particular highlight, with the architect keen to make as striking a visual first impression as possible.
Pacegrade realised it needed to use beautiful, sustainable wood with a stylish finish to meet the specifiers’ exacting brief. Following a consultation with its dedicated façade-specification team, Pacegrade opted for PEFC-certified Holz Schiller European Spruce – one of the greenest engineered woods on the market. The material met the project’s low-carbon requirements and provided the strength and finish required within the design brief. Its use was aesthetic and functional, combining strength and elegance to frame the structure’s floor-to-ceiling glazing and enhance other features and finishes.
