Pringle Richards Sharratt Architects were appointed by Galliard Homes to design a Creative Industrial Hub, with a focus around film and TV, within the Quayside Quarter Masterplan, on the site of the former Honey Monster factory at Southall, Ealing.
We worked closely with EPR Architects and landscape architects Gillespies who developed the masterplan for the 6 hectare site. The Creative Hub is one of 9 buildings across the site, plans for the other residential and mixed use blocks have been developed by EPR, Levitt Bernstein and AHR architects.
The new innovative Creative Hub will build upon the rich local history of film studios in the area and serve a recognised demand for studio space. More than just a TV and Film production facility, the aspiration is for a hub serving the various creative industries including skills development activities.
The new hub will include: Purpose built sound stages; an 8 storey production building comprising of workshops, pre and post production space, associated film industry office space and ancillary uses including screening rooms, restaurants and a roof top winter garden; and a multi-storey car park linked to the hub.
