The Lord Napier, London (UK)
“This was an Ind Coope Brewery pub, present at Hackney Wick by 1874. By the 1980s it was badged as a Taylor Walker pub. It became a free house by 1991 and closed in 1995. It has lain empty ever since.” ~ Stephen Harris
Conversation: As an abandoned pub in Hackney Wick, the Lord Napier has a long history of being a community-driven venue, and the site is currently being renovated in order to update and modernise it. The studio was brought onto the exciting project to accomplish in-depth facade development studies to unlock the architecture and lively past life of the pub.
This concept scheme has been designed to create a roofs cape gem in the heart of Hackney Wick. Timid at street level, a rooftop hotspot above Lord Napier for the public, to enjoy the atmosphere all year around.
We have pieced together its history and developed the facades to bring it back to its former glory. A lantern-like environment was created from the design, allowing for an open and airy atmosphere.
