British jewellery designer Alex Monroe has opened the doors to his new workshop and production facility in South London.
Monroe once again teamed up with architect DSDHA (the same firm that deigned the brand’s Snowfield Studio), to open a new and larger workshop on nearby Tower Bridge Road.
The new-built, 2,153sq ft workshop, presents a finely crafted storefront, while the building’s external aesthetics present its function as neither a retail or residential space – but rather a manufacturing facility designed to increase Alex Monroe’s production capacity.
Features include a ‘social staircase’, which connects the different floors, activities and users visually and acoustically. Elsewhere, a roof terrace provides a refuge from the hustle and bustle of London and intricate jewellery making. Light and nature also feature as two key elements.
This year is the brand’s 30th anniversary, with the opening of Alex Monroe’s facility marking the start of an exciting year for the British designer.
