HW Studios, London (UK)
Canvas studios being the crown of the development allowing artists to be there develop their own spaces.
Hackney Wick Studios approached The Studio to create a concept design for the HW building to maintain the influence of studio spaces and the opportunity of a commercial addition to keep up with the developing area and neighbouring Hackney Wick station.
The Studio planned and analysed to create a concept design for the HW building, ensuring we preserved the influence of studio spaces within the area by creating a series of canvas spaces which intertwined into a folding envelope, whilst maintaining the rustic and historic warehouse atmosphere. The way to make a commercially viable while keeping the ground floor courtyard was about extruding upwards.
Our design utilised the LLDC masterplan extensively to create a thriving and affordable workspace that ensures the continued growth of the local creative economy of Hackney Wick.
