Studio RHE to revamp PoMo block in 'post-Shoreditch' creative district

  • Comment

Emerging developer Trilogy Property has chosen Studio RHE to revamp Sten Samuelson’s 1992 Postmodern East India Dock office campus

The 55,000m² pink granite-clad block in London’s Docklands will be ‘reimagined’ as a low-cost home for startup and growing companies, and aims to take advantage of ’the eastward migration of the [capital’s] creative and digital sectors’.

Studio RHE is working alongside graphic designer Tom Hingston and marketing strategists Simon Turnbull and Andrew Hale to develop a masterplan and brand for the scheme, billed as ’a new post-Shoreditch workplace’.

Richard Hywel Evans of Studio RHE said: ’What we are creating promises to become a unique destination as a new urban campus for London. Connected to a multitude of new developments in the ‘new east’ and with Stratford only one stop away, East India Dock will offer a vibrant work environment with animated landscapes.

’A new commercial ‘street’ will offer a variety of bars, cafés and galleries which all play a role as part of the modern workspace.’

The appointment reunites the team behind the award-winning Alphabeta Building in Shoreditch.

Robert Wolstenholme, managing director of Trilogy Property, said: ’London’s creative work scene is changing fast and it’s our ambition that East India Dock, with its great transport links and emerging cultural scene, is at the heart of the next phase.’

A planning application for the masterplan is due to be submitted to Tower Hamlets later this year.
