Low-cost studios and desks at The Trampery on the Gantry
The Trampery on the Gantry is a joyous experiment in utilising open space to provide low-cost studios for local creative businesses. In collaboration with architects Hawkins\Brown, the huge steel structure at the back of the 2012 Olympics' Broadcast Centre has been repurposed to create 21 freestanding single and double-storey studios.
The individual studios each have a unique facade which pays homage to Hackney Wick pioneers and industry from the 19th and 20th centuries.

A vertical village for Hackney Wick's creative community
Each of the house-shaped studios is fully insulated with plenty of natural light, a sink, electric heating and an outside area with spectacular views over Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and the River Lea. Nestled amongst the studios is the communal Village Hall, providing a shared lounge for all Trampery members and open-plan desks on the upper floor.
