Thank you to our first pilot: Landfield Estate! More to come very soon...

Studio Weave has been commissioned to develop a coordinated approach to the colour schemes across Hackney’s housing estates by producing a design code and colour palette to guide new painting works.  

The design code consists of complementary colour palettes and tones which can be selected for different purposes: neutral base colours for large surfaces or facades, more vibrant colours for highlighting remaining paintable features, and bold colours that can be applied to additional detailing or ornamental flourishes. The final combination of colours for particular buildings is not strictly predetermined, instead, the design code draws from a broad family of colours of complementary tones and combinations, allowing for a degree of curated variation and individuality.
