Bradbury Works in Gillett Square, Dalston, has recently re-opened its doors to new and returning tenants. The new building includes the refurbishment of 600 m2 of existing affordable workspace, the replacement of ten mini retail units, and the provision of almost 500 m2 of extra workspace in a two-storey extension. Bradbury Works is the next step in the evolving story of one of the most unique and community focused public spaces in London.
The cladding reflects the colour of the sky and surroundings during the daytime and glows at night, unifying the form of the building as it wraps around the covered terrace, stair core and workspaces. The façade is fixed to a galvanized steel secondary structure. Both vertical and horizontal rails are provided to allow for metal rainwater pipes to be concealed behind the cladding and giving the structure a sense of lightness.
