New workshop and storage facility for work by artist Antony Gormley
The artist Antony Gormley, who works predominantly in metal, required more space to store raw metal materials, as well as a space for heavy and noisy processes in finishing sculptures.
This robust garage-like building provides workshop and storage facilities within the yard of his existing London studio. The steel mono-pitched frame, which is designed to lift several of the 600kg art pieces, is clad in heavy-gauge hot-dipped galvanised steel in order to withstand the industrial nature of the artist’s creative process.
The workshop is split into four ‘bays’, so that the space inside the building can be divided for different processes and uses.
