Toft Green Chambers, Toft Green, York
Toft Green Chambers is an important Listed Building, designed by the renowned railway architect George Townsend Andrews as offices for George Hudson and the York and North Midland Railway (later to become NER) and was part of the original York Railway Station development within the City walls.
The building had been closed for some time and was in need of attention. The brief was to sympathetically restore and renovate the building to enable it to be used as offices once more. The completed refurbishment is to be used as rentable office space.
The building had suffered a long history of unsympathetic use as a commercial office and so PPIY were tasked to renovate the building and still provide modern facilities and infrastructure for a modern tenant.
Happily some original features survived, which we have retained and restored, including; two intact range cookers and most of the folding timber shutters to the windows.
