Pawson's transformation of an old hat factory into a record label headquarters.
A renovation of an old 19th Century millinery factory into a creative use office space was undertaken by John Pawson Architects. Existing architectural features and structures have been celebrated with supplementary lighting to create a harmonious working environment, with a flexible approach to allow for the space to adapt over time.
The space consists of multiple shared work spaces, dining areas, and communal lounges, with each area having a relaxed and calming lighting approach applied, achieved with discrete 2700K lighting fixtures and concealed linear features.
Suspended linear light fixtures blend seamlessly into the ceiling, with individual control of the upwards and downwards directional light allows for a different setting, whether providing generous task lighting during the gloomy winter days, or creating a soft ambient uplight to the existing structure for an evening function.
