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.
