WAG designs the "Exchange" - Bar and Art Gallery in London 

WAG are currently working on a concept and design for a combined bar and art space in and around railway arches in Hackney Central. The scheme aims to integrate the experience of the architecture and physical space of the bar with a website/blog/chat and virtual art space, through a wireless and bluetooth active virtual communications and interface environment. The construction will use recycled materials where possible in the construction, working with artists coordinated by David Hees of the recycling arts collective Project 142. The roof collects rainwater for use in the bars’ toilets, and there will also be solar collectors located on the roof and south-facing wall for heating and energy generation. The client, Cem Gul, owns the local stone and mosaic wholesaler Artemis, who have supplied several WAG projects.
