Text description provided by the architects. Sir Anish Kapoor’s studio has been present on a South London street for 20 years. Since 2010 the artist with CFA have collaborated on the transformation of a series of industrial buildings into new flexible studio spaces for making art using a variety of materials and processes.

The project consists of six separate spaces incrementally transformed to allow the continuous use of the site by the artist during the period of the build. The project creates a total of 3,100msq for art making.

The project brief developed through the period of the project to its completion in late 2015. Individual spaces have differing atmospheres from near
gallery specifications to robust studio workspaces. The history of the pre transformed spaces was retained with the archaeological surfaces left untreated where the artist had drawn or sketched maquettes of early work.

The architectural interventions provided an internal world free from external distraction and maintaining a discrete presence on the street.

The collage of brickwork of the redundant diary building reflected the history of the site through brick textures and colours.
