A delightful place to work and to visit
Feilden Fowles Architects for Jamie's Farm and Oasis Waterloo
Contract value: Confidential
Rus in Urbe – this project is London's most central urban farm. The wasteland site has been transformed into a collaborative home for a trio of organisations with a shared focus on education: architect Feilden Fowles and the charities Jamie's Farm and Oasis Waterloo.
This collective team has created an oasis in the bustling city. The site includes a design studio, animal pens, a classroom, planting, central yard and barn.
The barn mixes the typology of agricultural architecture with CNC components to create a delightful building that can be used in multiple ways. At the other end of the site is a light and airy architecture studio within a walled garden.
It is a delightful place to work and to visit. Versatile in use, all the structures are designed to be temporary and demountable. The collective cluster can potentially move to another location in the future.
