BRICK LANE'S CRAFTOWN
A creative communal center
CrafTown is a micro-village in Brick lane that facilitates workplace units intended for creative practices, where they can benefit from both communal and private spaces in which to work and live. It is a revival of Brick lane’s crafts, educated by local creatives and people and inspired by the weavers' neighbourhood in the 17th century.
Each unit serves a particular industry, whilst simultaneously interconnected. They are provided with flexibility and opportunity for customization using kinetic, time-based architectural elements. Shafts of light are welcomed to the village at different times of the day to signalize the time for specific activities.
