Albert House is a building that’s hard to miss. If you’ve ever hit Old St roundabout, you’ll know Albert (affectionately known as Big Al). It looms over Old St just as you turn off the roundabout into Shoreditch, on the right hand side, around 40 yards from the Old Street tube station. Whilst the existing blue framing to the façade was arguably striking, it hasn’t stayed. The glass and steel cladding system actually hides an original 1930′s warehouse so we felt a sense of duty to bring back that character.
