SPC have been working with Space Studios to install and improve on existing access @ Triangle, Martello, Haymerle, Bridget Riley, White Building, Britannia Works, Eastway laundry and Sarah Lane studios.
Following lengthy planning and fundraising [space] have commissioned a further phase of infrastructure refurbishment at studios in and around the Hackney area of East London. The next of these to receive broadband installation is @ Deborah House in November 2014.
Martello Street was one of the earliest of the spacestudio network of artist spaces. We completed the broadband installation in October of 2014 with eight access points sharing out a connection from Triangle on Mare Street via a fast wireless bridge linkup.
Whitebuilding Spacestudio in Hackney Wick offers a set of lovely large spaces for resident and visiting artist accomodation with a wireless network SPC installed in 2013. They share the ground floor of the building with Crate who operate a pizza restaurant and micro brewery, tasty.
Haymerle Studios was added to the Spacestudios network in 2011, so we were pleased to have been invited to design and install distributed access via wireless LAN for all there. As luck would have it BT whom I normally avoid entirely have enabled the local exchange to deliver ‘Infinity’ a new broadband service which connects your phone line to fibre at the nearest street cabinet vastly improving both up and down speed. There are now 10 access points serving the 65+ studios with open access to 30/8 mb’s..
