Entry Description

The Future Cities Catapult is one of seven ‘Catapults' launched by the UK's Technology Strategy Board. The aim for the Future Cities Catapult is to become a world-leading center in urban innovation and urban integration.

Eight Inc. was appointed to help with conceptual strategy and spatial design of the Urban Innovation Centre - the new home of the Future Cities Catapult. Located in London’s historic Clerkenwell neighborhood the 19th century building has been carefully refurbished with a strong focus on preserving and highlighting its industrial heritage: exposed, white painted brick, oak and polished concrete flooring play sympathetically to the existing fabric of the building.
