Notes NOTES: This was originally a goods warehouse and custom depot. It has been developed by Herzog & de Meuron to house their extensive archive, provide exhibition space and housing to regenerate a rather industrial urban neighbourhood. The project began in 2007 and was completed in 2014. The archive is on the lower floor with the flats above.
