Aga Khan Centre Opens in King’s Cross

A new centre for Islamic studies has become the latest part of the King’s Cross development to open. The Fountain Workshop has been involved throughout the King’s Cross development and that involvement continues with the opening of the Aga Khan Centre. We created a number of water features for the many gardens that make up the space, with our designers taking inspiration from the way water is used throughout the Muslim world.

Lights, Camera, Action!

Having long been the centre of the British television industry, the BBC Television Centre, now named simply Television Centre, has finally begun its new life as a series of high-end residential and office spaces. At the heart of this iconic property in the Helios Fountain which, having been out of use for many years, has once again burst into action. The Fountain Workshop has completely renovated the fountain, giving it a more modern identity while still honouring its well-known history.

The Fountain Workshop celebrates International Women’s Day

Thursday 8th March 2018 marks International Women’s Day. This year’s theme was ‘Press for Progress’ – a theme that The Fountain Workshop fully supports. It is important today, as it is everyday, to celebrate the achievements of women that often go unnoticed. This is particularly important to us as a company in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths) field as we want to encourage women to go into fields where they have previously felt unwelcome. Click below to see how we pledged to Press for Progress this year.

Latest in King’s Cross Development Opens

The Fountain Workshop is delighted to announce the completion of the Gasholders, King’s Cross. A large circular reflection pool mimics the iconic cylindrical shape of the Gasholders themselves. Choreographed to respond to busy times, small jets below the pools surface create a rippling effect, giving the impression of light rain falling from the open space above. This not only creates a serene atmosphere, appropriate for this new residential development, but also naturally draws the eyes upwards, bringing attention to newly restored Gasholder skeleton.
