JTP architects’ new, self-designed studio is an adaptation of a grade II listed building in Wapping. It creates a unified space for the teams, preserving the building’s historic context in a modern work environment.  Use of timber was maximised as a renewable and recyclable material with low embodied carbon. Material specifications – adhesives, paint, timber, joinery, fabrics, finishes, and furniture – have enabled a VOC-free environment with a post-occupancy air quality assessment of ‘undetectable’. The studio attempts to support its users’ physical, mental and emotional wellbeing: acoustic barriers embedded into furnishings, natural light and sensory elements help improve cognitive accessibility.
