Overlooking Tanner Street Park in Bermondsey, a 1980s purpose-built campus of workshops is re-branded as Hatcher’s Yard. The intervention takes a low-waste and economically efficient approach. An engaging communal courtyard and a public undercroft space use materials which draw on the site’s long history as the Hatcher family’s haulage depot. The courtyard garden replaces an unused car park at the centre of the site, newly characterised with biodiverse, shade-friendly planting informed by learnings from HUT’s Forest Garden project. This space invites various modes of working with minimal maintenance requirements. New identity, numbering and wayfinding graphics allow visitors to navigate the campus and dark studio units are reimagined in a bright, hardwearing palette with tea points and data installed for plug-and-play lettings.
