Inspiration | Laszlo London

Architect firm Henley Halebrown have transformed an old warehouse in London into Bauhaus inspired workspaces. The Bauhaus, which is known for its craft techniques and colour palette, was the the inspiration behind Laszlo.

Laszlo was originally build in the early 20th century and was known as Batavia Mills. It was a facility for manufacturing and printing. Henley Halebrown found that The Bauhaus was a fitting inspiration for the renovation and wanted to celebrate the original ethos of the building , which was to find the beauty in craft and being true to the materials.

To further highlight the original character of the building, Henley Halebrown decided to focus on preserving and improving architectural elements instead of tearing it down and rebuilding, resulting in a workspace that feels light, contemporary and welcoming.

There are nods to The Bauhaus through out the building. The exterior has been decorated with Bauhaus graphics, a series of doors have been painted in colours from the colour studies of Josef Albers (Bauhaus Teacher) and you can find our Parallel Cushion, also inspired by Josef Albers in the communal areas of Laszlo.
