Old build­ing gets sil­ver lin­ing

The Wharf - - Details -

The Sil­ver Build­ing was built more than 50 years ago for Bri­tish Oil and Cake Mills and sits in the sliver of land be­tween Bri­tan­nia Vil­lage and the Thames, a space which still has rem­nants of tra­di­tional east Lon­don in­dus­try.

How­ever, the build­ing will join other fac­to­ries and of­fice build­ings, such as the nearby Mil­len­nium Mills in the march to­wards a creative and dig­i­tal fu­ture.

The un­re­mark­able con­crete struc­ture will be­come a home for en­ter­prises and star­tups, with short-term space for such pro­fes­sions as set designers and mu­sic pro­duc­ers ac­cord­ing to Soda, the ar­chi­tec­ture prac­tice which is over­see­ing the de­sign of the space.
