Hackney Down Studio (HDS) reception/ office/ communal space renovation


Location : Hackney, UK

Client : Private

Year : 2021

Area : 

stage : conceptual design

Project description

New design-led studios on the ground floor of Hackney Downs Studio to enhance welcoming reception, community hub, and capacity of studio/office space. The design proposal re-organises the programme space on the ground floor in order to reduce wasted space such as a huge corridor, a rabbit hole, and no visual guidance. The key design concept is 'layer by layer' which is connected visually via soft transition like green, media artwork and coloured finish.
