The Silver Building

The Silver Building is an imposing concrete structure between the Royal Docks and Silvertown that will provide London’s latest meanwhile space for creative enterprises, start-ups and local businesses

Originally built in 1965 for British Oil and Cake Mills, the site was left derelict for over 20 years and will now be transformed to become a dramatic, short-term workspace for everyone from set designers to music producers. Our interventions include the creation of a new entrance with double height void to the reception and bar, a variety of studios suitable for one to 20 people, a large picture frame window inserted at mezzanine level with views into the maker-space below and future flexibility for potential roof terraces,  and photography studios

Leading social entrepreneur Nick Hartwright is the man behind the scheme and the grand unveiling is scheduled for Autumn 2017.
