Old Street Nexus


Within 20 years the whole of London will change character as the combustion engine is replaced with electric vehicles and spaces like the Old street Gateway will be remade for people to enjoy rather than simply pass through. Seizing this opportunity is the central theme of our design proposal to create a Nexus where people encounter a series of spaces that create opportunities for interaction, meditation, connection…

We see the Nexus as a physical focus for the accidental campus created by the gathering of high tech companies in the area. Our spaces are designed to pass through with improved way finding or stepping outside the crowd to meet, exchange ideas and create real world connections with the diversity the city has to offer. It is a place to be used both day and night becoming a point of destination for those local to the area and the wider city.
