Lease transfer feasibility study of a deep plan industrial building. A 3D masterplan to bring in fresh air and light; social interaction, skills/knowledge sharing through a community 'village green'.
Knowledge Networks: London and the Ox-Cam Arc
The design transforms the locked-in inner volumes of
an air and lightless multi-level industrial building into a
three dimensional masterplan of blocks and passages for
industrial, workplace, R+D, education and leisure uses.
An urban street grid with two avenues and three cross
streets was created to bring daylight and air deep into the
space. This established twelve independent but connected
plots, with two new CLT mezzanine levels between
existing concrete and steel floors. A community Village
Green enables social gatherings and knowledge exchange
between the innovative and entrepreneurial tenants.
