Witherford Watson Mann wins go-ahead for Hoxton business centre


Witherford Watson Mann has won planning for this 8,500m² business centre in Hoxton, east London


The project will replace the existing 1970s-built business centre on the site with a new building providing workspaces, support for start-ups, a café, and meeting rooms.

The Stirling Prize-winning practice’s designs respond to the conservation area near to Hoxton’s Geffrye Museum in the London Borough of Hackney.

The building, which varies between three and six storeys and features a central atrium space, will be built from a purply-brown engineering brick.

The scheme is expected to start on site in next year.

    The interior looks like a refurbished prison hall.

  • Looks lovely to me Del Boy. That's what we need. More flexible workspace designed by good architects. Keep it up WWM and Workspace! Could we fit some flats on top?

  • Useful space, admittedly, but the roof lines are creeping inexorably skywards, aren't they?
    London only makes economic sense if it swells (or bloats)?
