The future of the office is continuously evolving to meet the needs of our ever-changing work patterns. Office expansions, technological advancements and a shift in mentality and ideas have meant a constant search for the most adaptable buildings to create offices that are fit for purpose. 
 
Looking back at our historical buildings, which are the building types that respond better to retrofits and can be adapted into offices? What kind of spaces can be easily converted and which one prove to be more difficult?  
 
Presenting exemplar case studies, this project-focused webinar will review how different London building typologies can accommodate exemplar office retrofits, highlighting how the old can facilitate the new.
