REAL STUDIOS REVIVES WETLAND GEM
Real Studios will soon be luring the public to Walthamstow Wetlands' new visitor centre, with displays that layer information and activities around a lively central café in the refurbished Victorian Triple Engine House. It opens summer 2017. Currently one of Thames Water's best-kept secrets, Real Studios' scheme is designed to encourage exploration of the vast reservoir landscape, with AV's revealing the workings and history of the site, its flora and fauna. A key feature of the design, an iconic installation, will be suspended over the ground floor café: 150 glass bottles, their contents gathered and displayed through engagement with local community groups and schools. We are working alongside WWM architects and KLA landscape designers.
