Polishing a rough diamond...
The building, which was officially opened by King George VI and features at the beginning of Oscar-winning “The Kings Speech”, has now been completely gutted.
Internal partition walls, old heating systems and boiler, all electrics – even the building’s wine cellar! – have all been stripped out as this striking building prepares for its facelift.
A £3m renovation, this character-filled symbol of Team Valley will soon become one of the most exciting office spaces in the North East. Retaining its unique look, it will house large open-plan office space, collaboration areas and plenty of access to green space at the back of the building – not to mention a rooftop terrace for the new tenants to enjoy.
