Artist Studio, Hoxton
For the past two decades this building has been used as studios for the internationally renowned artist Julian Opie. The new studio project extended the building in order to provide additional studio space.
The existing site is composed of industrial buildings which have been constructed on an ad hoc basis in a number of different periods since its original use as a furniture workshop in the mid-nineteenth century. The project extended the existing workshop building with a series of new aluminium-clad boxes which bring daylight deep into the plan of the studios through roof lights.
