Bottom Up Studios


Location: London, UK
Programme: Arts / Community
Cost: <£150,000
Status: On-going
Client: Private


The project looks to retro fit a derelict light industrial unit which previously formed a mechanics garage.

Once complete the project will act as a creative hub for both designers and artists, with cross platform collaboration between studio residents at its centre. It will actively encourage the learning of new skills and expanding creative frames of reference. The studios and workshops will have a hands on approach to making and experimentation.

Central to the scheme will be a project space and courtyard, through events, workshops and community out reach programmes, the studio will look to become an intricate part of the immediate area, eventually acting as a learning and resource ‘library’ for the community.
