Intervention in this 19th Century industrial building started off by reclaiming the existing brickwork and then went on to employ a minimal range of materials: concrete and wood. The brickwork is exposed to heighten the perception of a space into which new uses are incorporated. The rough texture of this material contrasts with the smoothness of the polished concrete which is used in the wet areas and with the oak used to panel the new partitions. Touch distinguishes old from new and identifies uses. The texture of the materials brings legibility to the space.
