Technical Info +

The public realm alterations were coordinated with the overall plan for the Hackney Fashion Hub to guarantee a unique and special sense of place.

The development is a refurbishment and reimagination of 12 Victorian railway arches with associated landscape and public realm works at 189 to 200 Morning Lane, Hackney. The arches were previously used as light industrial units predominantly for fashion outlets and retain its use in refurbishment as part of the Hackney Fashion Hub. The gross footprint of the development is approx. 2080sqm in a linear shape underneath the railway which creates a total internal floorspace of approx. 1550sqm. The hard landscape area has a gross area of approx. 900 sqm in a long stretched T-shape. Associated with the refurbishment works are pavement, highway and public space improvements in front of the arches that were altered in coordination with the neighbourhood to provide a unique sense of place along Morning Lane.
