Macmillan's Regent Quarter campus in London

Architectural firm Broadway Malyan has won a brief from Macmillan Publishers to design the refurbishment and fit out of its new 140,000ft² campus in Regent Quarter, near King’s Cross in London, UK.

Under the brief, Broadway Malyan will design the renovation of Macmillan’s existing 70,000ft² headquarter buildings.

It will also carry out interior design and fit-out work on a new BREEAM Excellent-rated building linked to a converted warehouse building.

Macmillan Publishers head of property Charles Stafford said the scheme will help to create a dynamic home for the company’s publishing divisions in King’s Cross, and enable it to promote collaboration and ideas sharing across the campus.

"This scheme will also enable Macmillan to leverage its scale, resources and expertise across its wider group," Stafford added.

While carrying out fit-out work on the new building, Broadway Malyan will retain a historic facade with 65,000ft² of recladding, and a 7,000ft² former Victorian stables will be converted into a cafe and presentation space.

Broadway Malyan associate director Brian Szpakowski said: "We will work in partnership with Macmillan to deliver on its aspirations for a creative and vibrant working environment that, together with the mix of buildings involved, makes this one of the most exciting workplace fit-out schemes in London for some time."

The scheme will complete in phases from 2013 and is scheduled to open in 2014.

After completion of the scheme, the offices of Macmillan Education and Palgrave Macmillan, which are currently located in Oxford and Basingstoke, will move to the new campus.
