Located in Islington, Cloudesley Street is a project which aims to demonstrate how sustainable materials can be used in modern design. The site is the former King of Denmark pub, once the centre of the community. With pubs and music venues across the country facing closures, how can we reimagine these spaces for the future? The design was inspired by the optimism of postwar futurism. New uses for sustainable materials have reshaped the way we view them. As mycologists, my clients wanted to utilise this biomaterial in their home. The central structure was clad with terated mycelium panels, with a spiral straicase leading up to the recording studio.

The use of adaptable structures such as a conversation pit which transforms into a bed by night was central to utilising limited space in the design.
