Portobello Market Incubators
Threefold Architects have designed a series of new low cost incubator studio spaces for creative industries within London's iconic Portobello market.
Located beneath the Westway, linking Portobello Market to Ladbroke Grove, the design comprises a series of offsite fabricated modular units sheltered beneath a dynamic pitched market roof structure. The superstructure is made from scaffolding and conceived as a 'framework' that can be easily and quickly adapted, extended and modified allowing the structure to evolve and grow to suit the needs of the studio holders and market users. The studios themselves are conceived as 'canvasses' upon which the cladding can be customised to reflect the nature of the startup businesses that occupy them.
