Trebor Sweet Factory : Conversion to apartments
Squeezed into the urban fabric of East Ham, the 1937 Trebor Sweet Factory was transformed into a series of refined live / work units. Well received by occupants and developer, the design breathed life into a building of character.
A new internal courtyard oversailed by bridges gave the development a social heart, strong circulation patterns, and dual aspect units. The structure was also extended vertically using framed glass boxes following the rhythms of the façade below. Simply finished interiors with sliding walls allow the flexible sub-division of interior space.
