Royal College of Art Sculpture School

The College wished to upgrade and refurbish its Sculpture School in Battersea. The building suffered from low thermal performance, inadequate ventilation and poor daylight. Circulation routes were unclear and orientation was difficult for both users and visitors.

The new plan set studio spaces and workshops about a cruciform circulation pattern reminiscent of a Roman ‘Cardo’ and ‘Decumanus’, with the main stair located at the crossing. Administrative accommodation was moved into two houses to the rear.

New materials maintain the rugged simplicity of the existing building, befitting of its purpose: the most notable addition being a new aluminium roof, with large areas of glazing for natural light and purpose made ridge cowls that provide natural ventilation.

Externally, grey masonry paint and metal screens have been used to bind a previously incongruous palette of materials.

The dark exterior is in sharp contrast to the brilliant white interior of the studio spaces.

The project was built to an exceptionally low budget.
