undercurrent architects: archway studios

October 1, 2012

Suhweet!

on a restrictive narrow site next to a rail line and viaduct from the 19th century, london-based practice undercurrent architects has

built ‘archway studios’ as a live-workspace prototype that suggests a creative adaptation of the 10,000 arches spread across the city.

responding to its industrial setting, the weathered outer corten steel shell gives a presence of solidity and strength, cut into strips and folded

in to open slits in the facade that funnel daylight into the white interior. a large vaulted workshop under the tracks is connected to

a tall atrium with residential niches in a bright open space, as all windows face south along its narrow axis to the existing foliage.
