Contemporary art exhibition centre, studio space and two apartments in two eighteenth century silk mercersâ€™ houses and a 1972 concrete framed office building in Spitalfields
The project provides contemporary art galleries within a new semi-basement and a series of eighteenth century Rococo rooms over three storeys with additional studio space, offices and apartments for artists in residence above.
The grade I listed buildings, originally built in 1754, have been added to, converted, ravaged by fires and repaired over two and a half centuries. The latest intervention by 6a Architects weaves itself through the buildings to create a new narrative of spaces, surfaces and textures that binds the past with the new in a contemporary whole.
