Kensington, London

Huckletree Kensington is a new, innovative and flexible workspace which breathes life back into a vacant building to showcase an alternative approach to working with the existing. Adopting a low impact design philosophy focused on minimising embodied energy and using cradle-to-cradle materials, the design incorporates a spectrum of finishes to create a warm and inviting space.

Designed as a series of collaborative co-working and event spaces, the project acts as a new flagship for the Huckletree’s 10th project. Through celebrating the ‘as-found’ nature of the building, the project creates a deliberate contrast between the existing building and the designed spaces.

Key to the project is creating inviting, intriguing spaces which aim to platform sustainable aesthetics; the project has been awarded SKA gold rating, a testament to the care and desire to showcase bespoke, recycled materials which tell the story of their material journey. This approach was taken throughout, and the project features recycled plastic worktops, regenerative acoustic insulation,  and sustainably-sourced joinery.
