Design Studio and Workshop
The nature of DLM Architects' work demands an inspiring studio space different to the traditional office environment. Every detail has been considered and fabricated with precision to allow each space to function as required. The robust palette of materials is honest to the industrial setting, but softened with the warmth of reclaimed timber and considered lighting.
The fit-out serves as an example of the approach that DLM take towards design, showcasing a raw palette of natural and reclaimed materials.
'The winner stood out by the clever use of space in the building and the fascinating ways to re-use and upcycle materials and components.'

The workshop is concealed behind old concrete shuttering boards, the stairs are lined in oak stripped during a recent demolition, and the kitchen from reclaimed bricks and locally milled timber. Lightweight rafts integrate flush lighting with polished plaster giving the perception of heavy concrete slabs floating above the workspaces.
The meeting room utilises the existing blockwork structure, along with charred timber lining. The meeting table has been fabricated from blackened steel trestles suspending 2 slabs of locally felled oak.
