Progressive and sustainable architecture is at the heart of MEPKs vision. They aim improve both the environment and lives of the inhabitants who experience their buildings and designs. They also know the importance of nurturing new talent and supporting students entering the world of architecture.
Work Experience for budding architects
Students writing dissertations in need first-hand experience of building projects are recruited at MEPK; they get taken onsite to see the construction from drawing to onsite delivery. These are important steps on the path to becoming an architect. Aside from the studying, work experience gives an aspiring architect the practical experience in understanding the production processes behind a design project.
Location, location, location
MEPK’s office is located at The Studios Islington. The nearest tube is three minutes’ walk to Holloway road, only two stops from the bustling hub of Kings Cross station. Projects rarely happen on the architect’s doorstep so transport links are key for both staff and clients alike. Recent commission for MEPK included a 27 Unit project commissioned in Harrow, so two stops from Holloway tube to Kings Cross then Metropolitan line all the way to Harrow.
MEPKs summer plans for The Studios
Aside from recruiting new students, summer enjoyment is also on the less formal page of the business road map. The Studios has two main outdoor zones and MEPK are located facing out to Zone 2; a gated area which has a south facing section perfect for outdoor summer working. Although not directly on their doorstep the plan for this summer (when it arrives) is more staff time outdoors, otherwise known as hot desking. Roll on summer!
