“A canvas space is an impressionable territory to be marked. It is raw enough to be modified and scratched into. You may cast your impact within its framework.”
Sketchbook Thoughts, Defining Canvas Spaces
Hackney Wick’s fabric is made up of the highest concentration of artists in Europe, making it a hub for creative and innovative developments.
The envelope of White Post Studios 0.1 from the facade appears to closely resemble White Post Studios 0.2. The structure, however, plays a highly contrasting story. The studio continued the concept of canvas units found within 0.2, but have varied their form and programming giving a distinctive option for occupiers. The shared roof garden allows for a communal and flexible space, with the extensive views from the terrace also enabling a connection to the modern city of Stratford and the Hackney Wick setting.
