Canalside Studio






Islington, N1

With most of our focus on the high end residential market, we were delighted to be invited to design a boutique commercial project for a prominent fashion production studio. Our brief was to create a new office and studio within a double height shell and core unit alongside the Regent’s Canal in Islington. The clients requested separate open plan office space, kitchen and a large area for photoshoots.

We introduced a mezzanine level, carefully balanced in terms of its projection into the space, to provide sufficient office space above without impacting on the studio area below. The studio itself was kept as open and flexible as possible, while accommodating all the required facilities. It features a luxurious seating area, adding a cosy twist to the commercial and functional backdrop. Our approach resulted in an open space bathed in light from two directions, accessed via an open and welcoming entrance that separates the more private office area and the photo preparation studio.
