Munckenbeck & Marshall's refurbishment and extension of Gainsborough Studios in Hackney, east London, into a 251-apartment development is nearing completion. The warehouse was once a thriving film studio, where Alfred Hitchcock made six of his early "talkies". A public square in the centre of the complex will include a film production company, a bookshop, and a cafe, as well as a building in the shape of Hitchcock's head.
