Freedom From Torture, London

We have worked with registered charity, Freedom from Torture, on a number of projects since 2008. We were initially appointed to take over an ongoing project that required procurement focus. ‘The Garden Project’ was a series of new timber framed and clad buildings, designed to be both an extension of the existing north London HQ building and a base for the ‘Natural Growth Project’, which uses the therapeutic nature of gardening and the outdoors to help treat its clients.

As project manager and contract administrator, we were charged with delivering the project from the concept design stage through to on-site completion in summer 2009. This meant working closely with both the client and the concept architect to achieve the client’s aims. The completed project offers attractive, flexible spaces with high levels of natural daylight, which are now used for teaching, assembly and therapeutic space.

Since this initial collaboration we have also been appointed to manage various feasibility studies, renovations and improvements to the charity’s main building.

    • project: New build, timber-clad assembly buildings
    • client: Medical Foundation for the Care of Victims of Torture
    • site: Medical Foundation HQ, Isledon Road, London
    • project manager: Burogloo
    • architect: Bishop and Suave

    • Freedom From Torture, London

    In recent years we are proud to have worked on a range of exciting projects with clients including, among others, UBS, Shaftesbury, Trident BC, EC Harris, Colliers CRE, ING and Canada Life.

    We often act as both architect and project manager, and are equally happy in charge of the whole project or “simply” the design elements. Equally, we have investor clients who refer to us on a consultancy basis for development strategy advice, where we are employed to maximise returns.

    Projects to date include complete building remodelling; development of  additional office space; high security storage and logistics centre; mews-development live-work units; creation of office space within a listed building; new office/meeting space for a fashion house and a new branch facility for a charity.

    Commercial projects are often fast paced, with deliverables different to other types of project. Burogloo offers practical, commercially-sound development ideas and achievable designs, suited to a fast-moving market.
