Art publisher Phaidon is relocating its London headquarters to Stratford, joining companies including Sadler’s Wells and the BBC in moving to the East End.
Currently based in King’s Cross, Phaidon will move to 2 Cooperage Yard on Sugar House Island at the beginning of April.
Its new home was designed by Waugh Thistleton, with a distinctive, saw-toothed roof. The internal space has been designed by Paolo Cossu Architects, and will include brands published by Phaidon, with Herman Miller furniture and lighting by Bocci.
M.d. James Booth-Clibborn said: “With East Bank being described as London’s biggest new cultural destination, it is fitting that Phaidon should choose this exciting new area for its London headquarters. Joining a host of world-leading cultural and educational organisations, Phaidon’s choice of destination provides the perfect springboard for our innovative and groundbreaking publishing programme.”
Sugar House Island is a new development situated next to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. It is named after a brick warehouse building on the site that dates from the 19th century.
