IN CONVERSATION | RESIDENT ARTISTS

16.11.17

 

REMI.C.T Studio is in the process of designing and questioning artist spaces at present.

 

The IN CONVERSATION series will be taken to artists over the coming weeks to gain the honest perspective of future residents.

 

London’s studio crisis continues, so what is crucial to make studios work and how we can open up conversations between developers, artists and the spaces themselves?

THE ARCHES | TRANSPORTING INFILL SPACES?

14.11.17

Unlocking London’s arches has been a productive infill concept so far. Many arched sites across London are home to charismatic cave settings in the form of bars and restaurants, as well as quirky workspaces.

However, multiple plots remain uninhabited due to TFL’s infrequent but necessary requirement to access the spaces, despite the requirement for servicing only being once every two years in some cases.

REDEFINING 'INFILL'

10.10.17

Infill is the urban planning term for the rededication of land in a built-up urban environment, usually challenging in terms of development, to new construction.


Infill sites are the cracks in the fabric of our cities; neglected but awash with potential. Their limits are not a restriction, but rather a unique quality to be rethought and responded to with innovative design and the artistry of construction.

(i) consists of bold, imposing features

(ii) towering, lofty heights and vast light/ open spaces

(iii) comprise of raw, energetic materials

(iv) epitomise gritty and atmospheric industrial-chic
