Who For: The Benyon Estate

What: 6560 sqm commercial  

Architect: Henley Halebrown

These six Victorian warehouses are used primarily as studios and offices totalling 6560 sqm of floorspace.  They form a network of 33 workspaces, ranging from 300 to 2,500 sqft, designed and equipped to support individuals and businesses in the creative industries.

They offer well-proportioned daylit spaces with a strong character borne out of their industrial past.  The scheme treats the roof of these warehouses as a landscape in microcosm on which are to be constructed a series of small prefabricated studios.

CMA secured planning permission for the scheme in 2015 and it was completed in 2017.  It has also been shortlisted for a RIBA London Award.
