When the Post Office vacated their vast sorting office in the back streets of Victoria, the site caught the eye of creative Italian developer Fabbriche Ceramiche. They saw the potential for a creative hub on an unprecedented scale in the area, aimed towards design and arts based tenants who could benefit from shared space and the cross fertilisation of ideas, concepts and products. It is the amalgamation of like-minded firms, designers and other associated organisations which is at the heart of the proposal. The imposing red brick building retained some handsome original Victorian features, and the practice developed a scheme which would sensitively maintain and exploit the existing character, both internally and externally, whilst creating new modern interventions to complement the original. Existing steel beams and columns were retained and refurbished, and the original ceiling exposed. Externally, the front fašade was cleaned and repaired with new large-pane windows.
