Refurbishment and conversion of a former red brick Victoria warehouse, with the addition of a two-storey roof extension, to house The Photographers’ Gallery

Located at a crossroads, between Soho and Oxford Street, the corner site on the quiet Ramillies Street is visible in a glimpse view through the continuous shop frontage of Oxford Street.

The red-brick warehouse is linked to a steel-framed addition with an external sleeve of black render reaching down to a ground floor. This is defined by black terrazzo, Angelim Pedra wood, and big windows framing a corner café.

As well as the three dedicated exhibition galleries the building also contains a floor for on-site eductaion activities, a book shop and cafe.
