Railway Arches, London

Investigation into the reuse of two adjacent railway arches in Lambeth, London for a specialist food company.

KWADAA, a Ghanaian food specialist, appointed the studio at a late juncture to provide assistance and guidance throughout the approvals process.  This involved liaison with both the Local Authority and Network Rail.

Our limited involvement centred on the project’s programmatic requirements; the necessary remodelling of the existing frontage to create a clear front of house arrival point, the zonal planning of administration and meeting areas and the provision of better access into the arches.  Each arch then housed specific functions relating to production and packaging.
