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
As an abandoned pub in Hackney Wick, the Lord Napier has a long history of being a community-driven venue, and the site is currently being renovated in order to update and modernise it. The studio was brought onto 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.
