110 PROJECT / HUB WESTMINSTER, LONDON, ENGLAND


The Hub project is the brainchild of 00:/ - a London-based strategy and design practice with a foundation in delivering award-win- ning architecture. The Hub network is a rapidly expanding global movement of community based workplace spaces with 30 Hubs around the world and more than 50 in the pipeline over five continents. The network was born in 2005 in London to pro- vide spaces with all the tools and trimmings needed to grow and develop innovative business ventures. Hub Westminster is the latest and larg- est in the network. Covering 12,000 sqft, it provides state of the art workspace and meeting rooms, 160 hot desking seats, a 40-person cafe lounge, a lecture theatre, innovation workshop space and collabora- tion booths, all backed with a £3m social investment fund. There’s even a greenhouse that can be used for meetings for up to eight people!


There are weekly events, seminars and lectures from leading business and innova- tion experts held for people working at the space. Recent events held at Hub West- minster include Sir Richard Branson’s book launch of ‘Screwing Business as Usual’ and the British Prime Minister David Cameron even announced a new bill on business co-


operatives there. This particular Hub is located on the South Bank in a 1960’s Grade II Listed building in what was once traditional office space that has been stripped out and completely redesigned. All suspended ceilings have been removed and services exposed. Lynton Pepper of 00:/ commented: “The lighting design was part of the concept of stripping the existing space back to its essentials to provide an infrastructure that allowed for almost anything to happen in the space - a super studio for the civic economy. We wanted the lighting to intone a sense of a laboratory that would encourage people to produce and experiment within that environment.”


Almost 120 Spectral IRIS T5 luminaires in a transparent finish together with RIDI track were specified by 00:/ for the various zones of Hub, with the balanced up/downlight output ensuring an even, shadow-free light across all areas. IRIS is comprised of ano- dised aluminium housing, containing a low glare reeded micro-prism diffuser, wrapped in an opaque, coloured or transparent clear acrylic case.


The transparent finish of IRIS reflects the Hub look with all internal wiring and control gear on view. An additional feature on the
