Studio RHE to create subterranean mixed-use destination in "former MI5 bunker"

Studio RHE is converting a 1.5ac (0.6ha) underground bunker that developer General Projects suggests may once have been occupied by MI5 into a subterranean mixed-use destination.

Located in Vauxhall, London, Storybox will provide 58,000sq ft (5,400sq m) of flexible space for creative industries workspaces, as well as occupiers like pod hotels, urban farms, R&D labs and fitness clubs.

It has been designed with cultural, educational and research bodies in mind and is set within 1ac (0.4ha) of public realm gardens.

A series of sculptures commissioned by placemaking agency Futurecity and created by artist Tom Price will animate the destination.

The site was acquired by General Projects in partnership with the British Airways Pension Fund, with work due to begin on-site imminently and completion expected in mid-2020.
