THE LORD NAPIER
Hackney Wick, London
“This was an Ind Coope Brewery pub, present at Hackney Wick by 1874. By the 1980s it was badged as a Taylor Walker pub. It became a free house by 1991 and closed in 1995. It has lain empty ever since.”
~ Stephen Harris
The Lord Napier is an abandoned Pub in Hackney Wick with a rich history as a community-driven venue for locals, and the site is currently undergoing restoration, in order to update and modernise the site. The studio was brought on to the exciting project to accomplish in-depth facade development studies.; to unlock the architecture and lively past life of the pub we have pieced together its history and developed the facades to bring it back to its former glory.
