TREExOFFICE, Hoxton Square
Working with the artists Natalie Jeremijenko and Shuster + Moseley, as well as the engineer Tim Lucas from Price and Myers, we designed and constructed a temporary co-working space for Hackney Council in London’s Hoxton Square. Wrapped around a mature London Plane tree the installation, named the TREExOFFICE, can be rented out to fundraise for environmental regeneration charity Groundwork’s work in Hackney’s parks and open spaces.
Up to eight people can work in the space which is equipped with a power supply and WiFi, or the space can host small meetings and events. The organic form of the building is designed to work with the natural setting of the square and the structure was carefully designed using a radar root scan to ensure no damage to the existing tree.
