Comprising four new 5-6 storey apartment buildings and extensive landscaping over 18,500sqm, Gantry integrates new residential buildings within refurbished historic elements such as the 1920’s Motor Car Works and Fowler Pottery warehouse facades, and the gable ends of the historic High Bay Building.

Nestled in an almost abandoned industrial area near the heart of the London Olympics is a new community space dedicated to redevelopment. Sugarhouse Studios is part pop-up cinema, workshop space, cafe and pizzeria.
Assemble, an artist, designer and architect collaborative in London, converted an abandoned sign-writers workshop into this mixed-use building with aim of encouraging community engagement and developing new ways to redevelop the industrial area.
Using reclaimed and salvaged materials, Assemble, with aid from the London Legacy Development Corporation, has created a vibrant center where people can gather to discuss, learn and create.
