LEA KATZ SPREADS OUT AT JAM FACTORY
Up-and-coming practice Lea Katz has unveiled these images of its planned new offices in Bermondsey, south London. The practice will become the latest to set up home in the high-profile Jam Factory - a mixed-used development in a former Hartley's jam factory masterminded by Ian Simpson Architects (AJ 15.11.01). The selfdesigned, 185m 2 scheme will create 25 work stations, a workshop and a meeting room. There will also be room for the nine-strong practice's pet snakes. Describing the ideas behind the project, practice founder Lea Katseli said: 'The design of the new office is an investigation of our own methodology. Our operations always stay fl uid. The archive, the ceiling, the windows, the tables, the shelves, the columns, the stairs and the library all flow into each other.' Most of the components for the £150,000 project will be manufactured in Israel, where Katseli has previously worked on a number of projects.
