Refurbishment of railway arch into creative work space for young creative start-ups

De Anderen is a creative space conceived by Tom Scholefield [Konx Om Pax], and Joanna Nethery [Distill]. The space has been created out of reclaimed timber that was donated by a fencing contractor, second hand timber pallets and packaging crates. These materials were utilised to construct a dynamic mezzanine space that sits as a piece of sculpture within the context of the existing railway arch incorporating a spiral stair made from the old timber pallets.

At the ground floor level the space has been sub-divided through the design and application of a series of bespoke movable screens. These screens have been utilised to define specific workspaces for individual designers and artists. There is also a meeting/presentation area, small model making space and a kitchen.
