Sjölander da Cruz Architects - The Badgeworks

Sjölander da Cruz Architects

Art Deco Gem transformed into 'live-work' development







An Art Deco factory built in the 1930s, The Badge Works was home to Reeves Badges for over 30 years has been transformed into seven townhouses, with spaces to work, two offices and a penthouse.

The existing concrete roof and glass roof lights to the rear of the site have been removed to create an open courtyard bringing natural daylight into the depth of the site and with the existing steelwork retained to support new balconies at second floor.

The houses are accessed from the new courtyard which keeps the industrial feel of the building with its crane track and steel beams. Its edges are softened with landscaping next to the entrance to each house.
