contributed by davidb

This project began as a shell and core development by the architects, but as the project progressed they were asked to make more contributions. The main elevation facing Hoxton Square shows seven bays, split in a 4/3 arrangement. This reflects where the core is located (centrally) within, and is reinforced by a difference in the number of storeys. The ground floor comprises of a bar, and (originally) the Lux Cinema, in the three bay unit (from where the name is derived). Unfortunately the cinema was not commercially successful and has long been closed. Above the bar, on the first floor, is a gallery space - originally intended for electronic art and new media. The remainder of the upper floors were intended as accommodation for London Electronic Arts and the London Filmmaker's Co-op - hence the cinema tie-in. At first sight the fašades look like load-bearing brick, but they are in fact brick-faced precast columns and spandrel units. The majority of the structure is in-situ concrete.
