New creative museum hub reaches completion in Southwark
A new building to house teams of staff from the museum sector in a collaborative and creative space has been completed in London.
The new hub on Austral Street in Southwark will house teams of staff from across Imperial War Museums.
Constructed by Reds10 off-site using modular construction and designed by Jestico + Whiles, the three-storey building consists of flexible workspace for 180 of the museum’s staff.
Paul Ruddick, CEO at Reds10, commented: “This project sets a new standard for off-site construction. It pushes the design to a higher level and truly shows the quality that can be achieved when architecture is embedded in the modular construction process from the start.
“We hope it leads to many more enlightened occupiers and developers selecting off-site construction, not just for its flexibility, efficiency and sustainability benefits, but to deliver truly amazing spaces where people thrive.”
Howard Pye, associate director at Jestico + Whiles, added: “Parkside champions the very best off-site construction methods have to offer – bringing forward the highest quality in build and design with an impressive and finely detailed, demure façade.
“Working alongside Reds10, we have relished the challenge that off-site manufacture has brought to this project. Parkside demonstrates the benefits to speed, quality of finish and sustainability that off-site can bring to construction.”
