The Farmiloe Building: details

Upon arriving at the Farmiloe Building, host to the Design Factory for Clerkenwell Design Week 2014, we were immediately greeted by a spectacular mural. A collaboration between Johnson Tiles and Ptolemy Mann, this large tiled installation was a colourful delight.




Whilst walking through the show, we were struck by the beauty of the Farmiloe Building itself.


The building interior, once the headquarters of the glass and lead merchants George Farmiloe & Sons, has a number of remaining architectural features and interesting details that give you a glimpse into the building's past and previous use. 



One of our favourite features in particular was the unexpected maze of panelled offices on the first floor. The narrow corridors and little rooms are sectioned by part glass walls. The light through the textured glass creates lovely patterning.
