Timothy Hatton Architects has designed and refurbished the Foundry in London, UK.
This project is the result of a sensitive refurbishment of a former Victorian foundry, its yard and buildings, transforming them into an architects' studio with a series of intriguing spaces for art exhibitions and musical performances.
Tucked away behind a busy road in Shepherd's Bush, the multi-level development also features landscaped courtyards and three rental apartments.
The historic building is of significant local interest and the elegant brick 15m-high chimney is a renowned local landmark.
Repurposing the old foundry as an architects’ studio preserves the link with the light industrial heritage of the area and retains business use – while providing a beautifully functioning workplace, along with large spaces in which to host exhibitions, book launches, chamber music recitals and other similar events.
