Creation of retail pods within two redundant warehouse buildings as part of wider factory renovation.
Basic idea of creating new box like inserts that can form retail opportunities within old garment assembly factory buildings. The project was part of a wider regeneration which saw us create coworking, music+ art studios, amenity and F+B opportunies.
We were looking for something special and different from the main stream, We didn't want the same cookie cutter approach we had found elsewhere. The team at COLE took us through the design process and delivered far beyond our initial expectations and we could not be more happy with the results.

People comment about the building when they visit, They love the way it fuses the old with the new. I love the way the light comes through the spaces in the morning it does not fail to make me smile
