Make is designing a distinctive, highly sustainable new workplace situated in the South Shoreditch conservation area, just north of the City. It represents the first building in Hackney for some time to be developed alongside a new public square, at the intersection of Worship Street and Clifton Street.

Our design replaces two six-storey, energy-inefficient blocks with one nine-storey, high-quality modern office building. The building – which will include affordable workspace – can accommodate either a single tenancy or a variety of businesses, from small tech start-ups and non-profits to established professional firms. Our design is targeting both a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating and WELL Building Standard certification.

The new block is composed of three double-height stacked frames wrapped in a gridded facade with inset glazing, which references the warehouse architecture of the area. At the three setback upper levels, the cladding profile is reduced and the window reveals pronounced, creating a lantern effect, while a roof terrace offers outdoor amenities.

The ground floor and entrance lobby face onto the newly formed Worship Square and provide adaptable space that will host a rotating programme of retail and leisure functions. These events will be open to occupiers as well the public, creating a real amenity for the people in the area.
