New Mixed-use Scheme at Wick Lane, Fish Island

Cass Allen have been appointed by Taylor Wimpey to carry out the detailed acoustic design of this new mixed-use scheme comprising 175 residential units and several commercial units.

The development is on the site of the workshop of the artist Gavin Turk, who gained notoriety after his tutors at the Royal College of Art refused to award him his postgraduate degree. This decision was based on his graduation exhibition, which consisted of a whitewashed studio space containing a blue heritage plaque (of the kind normally found on historic buildings) commemorating his own presence as a sculptor, stating “Gavin Turk worked here, 1989-1991”. He has since produced various revered works including realistic bronze sculptures of everyday items, such as ‘Revolting Brick’ shown above. ‘Revolting brick’ in particular became famous after it was stolen and replaced with a 40p brick without anyone noticing.

The project is challenging as the development includes industrial units (B2 use class) located close to residential units. Cass Allen will be working closely with DRMM Architects to ensure high levels of acoustic separation are provided between the two areas.
