Turner Prize

Turner Prize nominee Jake Chapman has commissioned Waugh Thistleton to convert this former brethren meeting hall in his home town into a 'baronial stately home'.

Black gloss pebble-dash will cover the three-storey Victorian building in Hastings'Blacklands neighbourhood - the site of a burial ground during the great plague.The scheme reworks the interior to create a number of large open spaces.

Chapman's top-floor bedroom includes a landscaped floor that resembles a crazy golf course and a first-floor garden features a series of De Chirico-inspired arches.Andrew Waugh, director of the Shoreditch-based practice, said:

'I was keen to do something I perceive as being about Jake.

The scheme is my interpretation, my portrait of him.'
