astragal Studio vistas

Imagine taking a slice of Covent Garden and putting it down in Shoreditch, gushes the London Evening Standard in an article about Gainsborough Studios, a new residential scheme by Munckenbeck & Marshall on the site where Alfred Hitchcock began his career. The scheme, featuring 12-storey stainless steel blades running up the building, also includes a thoroughly modern film studio. But this is not the only scheme in town based on film history. Over in West London, loft development king Harry Handelsman has just bought Ealing Studios, where some of Britain's best-known films were produced in the 1940s and 50s. Harry's architect? Step forward James Burland, who recently left the top job at Arup Associates to set up on his own.
