Herbal House

The Herbal House scheme is a refurbishment of what was once the Daily Mirror’s headquarters.

Restore London works were concentrated on the internal cleaning and restoration of the extended spaces taking the building to 150,695 sq ft. of new office space and 9,000 sq ft of sought after high specification residential space.

Restore London were tasked with the controlled cleaning, repairs and refurbishment of the internal brickwork, stonework, Mosaic, terrazzo, ceramic tiling and concrete. The Architects concept was to marry the restored old with the contemporary new in a stunning and unique way and with our teams multi skilled input the resultant ambience says history now meets the future.

In particular the removal of Paint from internal concrete columns and ceilings by way of disciplined wet abrasive cleaning was meticulously controlled both health and safety wise and environmentally.

The Project was complicated logistically with especially limited access and egress, the entire Project team rose to the significant challenges they were faced with.
