A New Standard in Office Space
Where it all Comes Together
A fresh new face amongst Clerkenwell’s handsome 19th century warehouses, Sutton Yard embraces the future while remaining in tune with the area’s industrial past. Expansive, open-plan and light-filled spaces create the perfect canvas for modern working, fresh thinking and creativity. Raw concrete, metal and exposed details punctuate the minimalist interior, lending the design a modern-industrial edge. Large, open-plan floor plates – spanning up to 16,000 square feet – are flooded with light from the floor-to-ceiling windows and offer truly adaptable workspace. The newly developed top floors enjoy fantastic views across London and a private roof terrace from which to enjoy it. Outside, the secluded communal courtyard and adjacent café provide additional space to meet and take time out.
Sutton Yard sits on the site of an old varnish and metal works. This map, from 1871, demonstrates not only the industrial history of the building itself, but also that of Clerkenwell. Metal work foundries, breweries, tanneries, engineering works and mills were all in close proximity and this industrial past still pervades modern day Clerkenwell with its numerous warehouse buildings and repurposed factories.
Research on the history of the local area led to the discovery of Thomas Sutton, a notable philanthropist who founded many important local foundations and churches. Sutton was once regarded as the wealthiest commoner in England and, with his abundant riches, displayed an admirable humility and nobility with a careful distribution of his wealth.
In Thomas Sutton’s honour, the street now known as Northburgh Street was initially named Little Sutton Street. Great Sutton Street still stands parallel. We have therefore decided to pay homage to the original street name and more importantly the man behind its name, Thomas Sutton.
