by Anastasiia Shepel
Location: Old Laundry Site, Shepherds Bush Market, London, UK Area: 3,4 hectares The Old Laundry Site is adjoined to the current Market, and sits between Shepherd's Bush Market and Pennard Road. For many years, this piece of land has been unused; the vision is to bring it to life with recreation health centre (GYM, Swimming pool, sauna, GP, mental help) as well as food and drink pop-ups for the local community. Great solutions often lie beyond convention. Consider that most buildings in UK could be built with a wood structure yet very few are. This Design Statement has been prepared to re-develop the land at the Old Laundry Site, Shepherds Bush Market. The concept idea is to to design the project to be a quite contemplative centre made out of timber. It is in a busy part of London but can be calm and relaxing for the local community and all users. Moreover, according to Covid-19 situation it is very rich and useful proposal for future of the Shepherds Bush area and nearest surroundings - «5 star project» consisting of Heath, Energy, Innovations, Healing process and Biodiversity.
Short journey through the future proposal with some analysys elements and diagrams made by author. Enjoy!
