Michael Grubb Studio has been appointed as lighting designer for the Hackney Wick and Fish Island connectivity project. Michael Grubb Studio was part of the winning team, headed by Adams + Sutherland, and includes Peter Brett Associates, JCLA, Ecology Consulting and David Bonnet Associates.

Hackney Wick & Fish Island is the creative heart of East London and home of musicians, artists, designers, filmmakers and entrepreneurs. There are over 600 artist studios in the area, one of the highest densities in Europe. The area annually celebrates the Hackney Wisk Festival and the Hackney WickED Arts Festival.

The project is Michael Grubb Studio’s fifth Legacy related project.
