This is a beautifully conceived, contemplative building for Feilden Fowles’ own offices on a ‘meantime’ site, developed in collaboration with an urban farm. The simple timber frame structure, with manually operated cross-ventilation vents, is an elegant and economical solution to the site, almost faultlessly executed.

The jury particularly loved the relationship to the Dan Pearson landscape and farm, and it was clear it makes a very happy space for the staff. Procurement of the land for studio space was an ingenious bartering structure at a time when many smaller businesses struggle with high London rents. The studio is part of a wider masterplan that includes an urban farm and events barn. Together they will make a jewel of a project.
