City Pavillion, Bethnal Green

Art & Graft, Animation Studio

The brief for this workspace project was to convert an existing domestic live/work space into a commercial animation studio for a small, growing team.

With an emphasis on clean lines to create a gallery-style feel that could grow with the studio’s business, leaving room to ‘fill-in’ the space.  A mix of simple materials such as pegboard and laminate set against a white and grey backdrop, allowed the studios artwork and graphics to really stand out and create a strong identity that has room to keep expanding.  We designed a very playful kitchen, using colourful, geometric Formica shapes on birchply to create a focal point and friendly hang-out space in the lower studio.
