Turner Prize-winning collective Assemble’s former workspace – the Yardhouse – has gone on sale for £150,000
The two-storey building was previously erected in Stratford, east London, but has since been dismantled and put in storage.
The 250m² structure – currently listed as ‘under offer’ on The Modern House website – was put on sale at the end of last week.
It is arranged with a barn-like timber frame, surrounded by prefabricated insulated panels. The front facade is made with pastel-coloured concrete tiles which were handmade on site.
In addition to the asking price there is an additional fee to transport and re-erect the building, which The Modern House estimated to be around £100,000, with the estate agent saying it was ’likely’ that Assemble would be involved in this process.
The Yardhouse was designed by Assemble to be an affordable workspace, which could be dismantled and reassembled elsewhere.
It features two outer bays used as studio spaces, with a double-height communal area in the middle. According to The Modern House, this layout could either stay the same or, in theory, be altered by the new owner.
Earlier this month, three of Assemble’s Turner Prize-winning houses in Toxteth, Liverpool, were put on sale with a clause ensuring they are affordable to locals.
Assemble’s new studio is in Bermondsey, south-east London.
