Yardhouse is an architectural project designed and made by London-based collective Assemble, with the intention of creating a different kind of workspace – one that could be taken down, rebuilt and reconfigured as needed. For a collaborative, sociable and affordable environment, the timber frame structure was built with an open communal area and partitionless studios spaces that can be adapted to suit each tenant. The pastel-toned concrete tiles that clad the front façade were handmade by the group on site, using differing amounts of pigment in each batch; these were specifically designed to work with the public yard that it faced.
