Landmark Greenwich building gets new lease of life
We are delighted to have been appointed to work on the re-development of the Old Sorting Office in Greenwich. The project comprises the sensitive re-design of an existing complex of buildings and the enlargement of the main building to create five three-bedroom apartments behind a retained facade. Elite will be responsible for the detailed design of a new free-standing steel-framed structure within the facade and boundary walls. Thanks to the vision created by architects Lynas Smith, the footprint of the existing building will be optimised through the creation of vertically extruded volume above the existing pitched roof shape so that the new roof appears to 'float' above the facade, linked only by the glazed infill zones.
