Hackney city farm entry building

The development of the entrance building at Hackney City Farm in the City of London was a great opportunity for a wood structure building configuration.

Following this concept the project is shaped only by a façade. The volume behind the façade rolls towards the existing perimeter wall conducting the rain water away from the main street entrance. The façade becomes an urban decoration to the street and a store shelf complex for product exhibition to the interior connecting visually both ambiances through an open paneled window grid.
