Founded in 2006 by Carl Turner
, this architectural studio is well-known for its innovative designs. In December the practice unveiled its latest scheme, called Peckham Levels – a conversion of a disused multi-storey car park into bars, restaurants and affordable workspace for locals, complete with an Instagram-friendly, UV-painted stairwell. Two years ago the firm transformed a disused space in south London to create Pop Brixton
– a ‘mini city’ of bars, food stalls and office space created primarily using wood and old shipping containers stacked on top of each other. Perhaps controversially, the firm is working on plans to redevelop a square in Peckham, which is being protested by some locals.
