Hackney Picturehouse

The former Hackney Ocean music venue has been transformed into a venue with four cinema screens, café, upper level bars and facilities for community organisations. The state-of-the-art auditoria are equipped with 576 luxury seats and the best digital, 3D and satellite technology. Films are screened seven days a week, 364 days a year. Newly created lettable offices provide affordable work spaces.

The design objective was to reuse and rethink as many of the existing spaces and materials as possible.
