Spring Place Co-Working

Spring Place Co-Working

3-6 Spring Place will replace a dilapidated car workshop in Kentish Town with 6 storeys of flexible work space. The ground floor will include a public café, flexible co-working space as well as meeting spaces and an open courtyard adjacent to the railway arches.

The complex site is dissected at an angle by the North London Overground line, and the scheme celebrates this complex geometry, embracing the unexpected left over volumes. 

Rooted in both the industrial heritage and growing creative industries of this part of Kentish Town, the scheme references the articulated roofscapes, steel infrastructure of the railway and the solidity of Victorian brickwork.
