We created Phoenix Yard in 2000 when we bought 65 Kings Cross Road, then a workshop for the clothing industry, as the base for our practice. We bought 69, next door, a few years later.
Phoenix Yard is now a thriving, design, tech, and third sector mixed business community in Kings Cross / Clerkenwell, London, close to Exmouth Market and Sadlers Wells, and walking distance from Islington. We are close to major transport links including the Eurostar link to Paris and Belgium from St Pancras, and Kings Cross, Euston, Farringdon, Russell Square and Angel stations. The 63 bus stops outside.
Parts of the building date from some 300 years ago, when it was an isolated house in the country.
Now imaginatively restored and adapted by Shepheard Epstein Hunter, it is a unique, attractive and flexible building, which has attracted 300+ visitors on September Open House days. Our two buildings provide a comfortable, friendly atmosphere with a diverse community of people, and size and type of firm.
Phoenix Yard is made up of architects, engineers, charities, tech companies and many different types of business and consultant, and offers flexible work stations on a monthly license basis to suit members' changing requirements, supported by meeting areas and rooms and support services.
As at February 2018, we have only a couple of work stations free. If you are interested in these or want to check whether we are likely to have more workstations available in the future please e-mail George Georgiou.
