31 CoWork is an old hardware store that has gone through many lives but has now undergone a complete full retrofit by Artel31 to create a high-end co-working space for creative start-ups.

The roof space is being improved with a new dormer, the detailing of which uses a galvanised steel surround to link the historic and the new portions of the building.

Sustainable measures

Natural sustainable materials and reused materials

Environmental construction policy to minimise chemical use and construction waste

Passive solar gain regulation/orientation studies undertaken during design
