About this Event

The Board of Trustees of the Hackney Society cordially invites you to the Society’s Annual General Meeting

6.30pm for a prompt 7pm AGM start in the cafe, followed at 8pm by a tour of the building to be led by architect Simon Henley of Henley Halebrown. Visit the Hackney Society website for a full agenda, Annual Report and other documents.

The De Beauvoir Block is a network of 33 workspaces, designed and equipped to support individuals and businesses in the creative industries. The complex was created for the Benyon Estate from a row of six early C20 industrial buildings. Small prefabricated studios, described by the architects as a ‘landscape in microcosm’, were constructed on the roof tops. Minimising heated circulation spaces, this solution has provided highly insulated workspaces, benefitting from natural ventilation and an undisturbed view of neighbouring roofscapes.

The development has won numerous awards including a 2018 RIBA Regional award for its ‘thoughtful rationalisation of the existing buildings [which] allows successful re-use of the cores and provides new circulation, placed externally to maximise floorspace and encourage tenants to move around outside’.

The Benyon Estate are not charging for the Hackney Society’s use of the building and the event is free to all, but donations for a local charity, to be announced on the night, will be collected during the evening.

Please confirm your attendance by Wednesday 11th September 2019 by registering via the 'Register' button above . Apologies and enquiries by email please to info@hackneysociety.org.

This event is free to all but booking is strongly recommended, and an on-the-night donation to a local charity is appreciated. Members and non-members are welcome, but only paid-up members may vote on matters at the AGM.
