Stage 5, MArch

Hackney Wick’s Creative Hands, is a creative hub containing fashion design ateliers, creative boutiques and a catwalk event space to host private functions. The scheme is designed using the existing warehouse’s envelope that it now replaces: including re-use of foundations, steel structure, aluminium cladding, red brick and donated recycled fabric. Locally sourced coppiced timber is the only addition to the material palette and the repurposed perforated aluminium cladding is the highlight of re-use for shading.
