Courtesy of the Louise Blouin Foundation
The Foundation is one of the largest non-government funded, not-for-profit cultural spaces in London and is a showcase for both established and emerging contemporary artists, think-tanks and artistic performances of all forms, whilst also providing a home for the Louise Blouin Foundation and its work. Louise Blouin’s £20 million investment has transformed a former coachworks into an important cultural arts space, involving the local community and injecting capital into an area currently undergoing regeneration and redevelopment.
The former coachworks of Barker & Co (coachbuilders for Rolls Royce, Bentley and Daimler) has retained its 1920s industrial façade, but architects Borgos Dance have given the interior a complete redesign to maximise the building’s potential and qualities of light. The re-sculpted interior provides a dramatic triple height 35 ft entrance hall, an adaptable 5,000 sq ft gallery space and café on the ground floor. The first and second floors have been designed to provide office and further facades of the building, using all 80 of the existing external windows. Each window, lit from within, acts as an intelligent unit, controlled individually or as a whole to create an ever-changing artwork on the façade of the building.(read less)
