Gasholder Works is a mixed use building of 230 affordable homes and 2000m2 of creative workspace in Meridian Water for Enfield Council.
The building will help to establish Meridian Water as a thriving place to make and create, being a home to an abundance of businesses of a variety of sizes and types, whilst also providing much needed affordable homes for Enfield.
The workspaces are arranged around an open landscaped courtyard which opens onto the naturalised brook and Brooks Park to create a social hub in the centre of the building.
The building is built with a cross laminated timber structural frame, designed on a modular grid to drive efficiencies in construction. The facade is formed from recycled aggregate concrete precast panels cast using the corrugated metalwork of the surrounding industrial buildings as a memory of the site’s industrial heritage.
