Trebor Sweet Factory

Project Information

Hollybrook 
London, E7

Squeezed into the urban fabric of East Ham, the 1937 Trebor Sweet Factory was transformed into a series of refined live / work units. Well received by occupants and developer, the design breathed life into a building of character. A new internal courtyard oversailed by bridges gave the development a social heart, strong circulation patterns, and dual aspect units. The structure was also extended vertically using framed glass boxes following the rhythms of the façade below. Simply finished interiors with sliding walls allow the flexible sub-division of interior space.

Gross Floor Area      4,925sqm
Project Value £5.25m
Status Completed 2003

University College London
Grade I Listed building

The project resolves a long running conflict between retaining the statue of St Michael Slaying Satan, whilst reopening the Oculus, at the heart of UCL’s Grade I Listed Wilkins Building. The insertion of a new structural glass plinth supports the statue in its original position, whilst re-opening the oculus reestablishes long lost vistas between the ground floor Octagon Gallery and the cupola topped first floor Flaxman Gallery over. The ground floor Octagon ‘non-space’ is transformed into a museum gallery with the showcases taking reference from plaster reliefs in the adjacent Flaxman Gallery.

Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity
Grade II Listed building

Through the careful introduction of contemporary elements into reinstated historic room hierarchies, planning and listed building consents were secured for this Grade II listed building within Westminster’s Pimlico Conservation Area. Kitchens and bathrooms are designed as pieces of furniture sitting within the historic setting, allowing the elegant and non-invasive integration of modern services. The building has also been extended in response to its locale and the urban typologies of Pimlico.

Reuse


To work in the city is to re-use the past. By harnessing social history and collective memory, old and new can be married as part of an evolving environment, capable of regeneration and of sustaining the urban continuum long into the future.

Allowing new uses into old structures can create new spatial opportunities that step beyond form following function, providing open narratives for occupation. Who would have built a turbine hall as a contemporary art gallery for Tate Modern?

Our expertise spans the refurbishment of Grade I listed buildings to the reinvention of industrial buildings and their settings, reviving and unlocking the potential of significant spaces and structures.
