New London Architecture

Wallis Road - New London Awards 2023 Winner

Winner in the Retrofit Category

HTA Design reimagined and repurposed a Victorian warehouse in Hackney Wick, East London, creating a permanent new home for its 200 London-based staff.  Built in 1868 as a factory to manufacture the world’s first synthetic plastic, the warehouse originally comprising four separate buildings and was identified as a significant piece of heritage within the Hackney Wick masterplan. HTA’s transformation celebrates and preserves its historic character, whilst instilling a new purpose that safeguards its future by creating a flexible, modern workplace for its collaborative and interdisciplinary team.

This intervention demonstrates what can be achieved when a company acts on the needs of its people. It sets the bar for creative-led businesses keen to achieve organisational resilience by shaking off the prohibitive cost of London’s corporate core. The outcome provides an environmentally and socially sustainable new purpose to the building.
