The Powerhouse

Location:
Hayes, London
Client:
Cathedral Group
Status:
On Site

The Powerhouse has been granted Reserved Matters consent and starts on site in August 2015.

Once the engine of the EMI factory, it used to provide for the energy needs of this large manufacturing plant. As a celebration of the Powerhouse’s historical role as an energy provider, a new site wide energy centre is located back in this building at the heart of The Old Vinyl Factory. 

The new extension, with large openings to The Groove, exposes the contemporary machinery, in a celebration of the spirit of the machine and the provision of power. Alongside this a new cafe creates an active corner whilst the main hall lends itself to becoming an events space for music and other productions, or a buoyant restaurant, making the most of its fine detailing and the grand internal space.
