The Granary


Client Rooff Limited

Local authority London Borough of Barking and Dagenham

The refurbished Granary, with its bronze-clad extension, is the headquarter offices for developer/contractor Rooff. Located in the Roding Valley/Abbey Road Riverside Conservation Area by the River Roding in Barking, the locally listed Granary building had been derelict and unoccupied for some considerable time and was in urgent need of comprehensive restoration to bring it back into use.

“The building is not only a fantastic example of an industrial heritage restoration project but a wonderful building to work within.”

Mark Horn, Managing Director, Rooff Limited

The project won praise for the extensive refurbishment that both restored parts of the historic building and added a bronze-clad modern extension, described by judges as “a well-considered architectural statement”, and an example of what a limited budget could achieve “by applying determination and imagination, setting a standard for other to follow”
