to fit all the programming needs and redirect flow:
a new ground-floor extension and a new top floor
with rooftop garden. The former is a two-story
appendage with a frontal colonnade clad in facing
brick that matches the original facade, and glazed
tiles that recall the neighborhood's 17th-to-19thcentury reputation as a producer of ceramics.
Giving the building a civic character, the extension
demarcates the main entrance, visually connects
the exterior and interior, and increases the floor
plates for the aforementioned space and amenity
requests. The overhauled top floor, meanwhile,
now holds additional meeting rooms, a bar, terrace,
garden, and even a rentable luxury apartment
with a sunken bathtub.
An alluring past
Tapped for the interiors, Universal Design
Studio (an offshoot of industrial-design duo Barber
& Osgerby) took inspiration from Tintagel House's
1960s roots as well as "the building's past life and
our imagining of the rich stories and events it must
have witnessed," explains Hannah Carter Owers,
co-director at the studio. At the client's request,
the designers avoided clich├ęs when exploring these
characteristics. For example, they incorporated a
small selection of iconic furnishings from the era,
such as Verner Panton's flowerpot pendant and
Vitsoe shelving by Dieter Rams, and mingled these

with modern pieces that inject a fresh,
contemporary feel.
"The new technologies of that era
associated with espionage and data processing
for investigative purposes have been widely
fetishized in film and TV," says Carter Owers,
"along with the materiality and feel of the spaces
used to accommodate them." This inspired the
creation of playful features such as the "Secret
Room," a speakeasy-style members bar accessed
through a cleaner's cupboard door, and the
reception desk's traditional split-flap timetable
board, which displays witty or inspirational
messages programmed via mobile app.
Intrigue and the massive ICT 1301 mainframe-
which was a state-of-the-art system of the period
that became the nation's first police computer-
informed some of the material and color choices
as well. The designers subtly referenced these
by implementing a strong graphic quality formed
with contrasting finishes, textures, and hues.
Bespoke pink terrazzo and polished concrete are
juxtaposed with swaths of restored original wood
flooring and accent colors found in cabinet fronts,
curtains, and upholstery. Tech-evoking brushed
stainless steel lines an oculus that the designers
punched in the new extension; the metallic finish
also helps direct and diffuse natural light from
the aperture's skylight and first floor down

into the ground level. And black tones of some
furnishings, lighting, and surfaces throughout
add both a touch of mystery and modernity.
Anticipating the future
"While the heritage of the building and the history
of the area have informed our design for the interior,
the heart of this project is very much in the future,"
adds Carter Owers, alluding to the client's goals
of revitalizing this community. For instance, TOG
created a dedicated pro-bono incubator space
on the ground floor for select startups.
"Vauxhall is not an established business
location. However, it has a strong residential
presence," Green says. "We know that the trends
driven by technology include mobility of work
and people reducing their commute time." This
prediction of nomadic work influenced another
aspect that sets TOG apart from other co-working
brands: Members have access to all 41 TOG locations.
Tintagel House may very well lure innovative
tenants from the other offices, especially as the
location is easily accessible via public transportation
and bicycle. "For the first time, we can really
see one of our buildings contributing to an area,
generating employment, and improving a vacant
and neglected site," Green says. c
