Studio 1.1 – 2011/12
Christoph Lueder, Lucy Pritchard
Studio 1.1 engaged with sites located in Hackney Wick, near the train station and ‘Hackney Pearl’. The studio was interested in qualities of spaces formed by and for everyday activities and explored a program for a small bike repair shop, joined with a small community space.
We investigated formal and informal qualities or urban spaces around Hackney Wick, and together with a series of visits to independent bike shops in London, these became a basis for a building proposal, which elaborated on the topographical qualities around the ramp leading to Hackney Wick station and/or the relationship to the fragmented street frontage of Berkshire Road.
