Bartlett opens temporary studio space

  • Comment

[FIRST LOOK] Hawkins\Brown’s temporary studio space for the Bartlett School of Architecture has opened its doors

The architecture school has moved to temporary studios in a former warehouse building on Hampstead Road, near Euston station, while its current home is transformed.

Hawkins\Brown’s £30million scheme for the refurbishment of Wates House – the home of the Bartlett – won planning in July (AJ 03.08.14).

The project will double the school’s teaching and research space, while opening up the façade of the 1970s building.

Euan Macdonald, partner at Hawkins\Brown, said: ‘Working closely with UCL Estates and The Bartlett the fit-out of 132-140 Hampstead Road has been designed to provide the school with a temporary home that will not only support the school’s exemplary teaching and research, but also encourage new practices of teaching, research and collaboration within the robust shell of these former warehouses.’

The Bartlett will use these temporary studios until it returns to the revamped Wates House in autumn 2016.
