Mortlake Brewery

 

RIBA Schools Programme

Richmond Park Academy

 

 

The RIBA schools programme aims to provide the next generations with experience, knowledge and understanding of architecture and the built environment around them, as well as the skills and confidence to become involved in debates surrounding it. As part of the program, Erbar Mattes were invited to form part of the Architecture Ambassador Partnership. Working in close collaboration with Richmond Park Academy we developed a design brief that explored ideas to convert a disused industrial building into a new space for living, working and recreation. The chosen building is a former malt house that forms part of the Mortlake Brewery (Stag Brewery) site. Built in the early 1900s, it comprises an eight and nine storey volume constructed on a rectangular footprint in London stock brick, adjacent the towpath along the River Thames. The building forms an important local landmark and contributes to the significance of the adjacent Conservation Area. Following an initial site visit to explore the building and its surrounds, the pupils worked in groups to develop their design ideas through drawings and sketches. For the second part of the workshop, all the groups collaborated in the making of a 1:20 timber model to represent their proposals.
