HAT wins planning for £2m arts centre refurb

  • Comment

Emerging practice HAT has won planning permission for a major refurbishment of contemporary arts venue in South London

The £2million project includes both the purchase and redevelopment of the building which has been home to the non-profit arts organisation Gasworks for the past 20 years.

The 2014 shortlisted-Emerging Woman Architect Hana Loftus’ practice’s plans for the scheme will double the building’s current gallery space.

The project also includes artists’ studios, an events space, and improvements to the building’s entrance, making it more appealing to visitors.

Loftus commented: ‘Gasworks is on its way to getting the building it deserves. For the first time, the architecture will respond to the organisation’s world-class contemporary art programmes, reflecting the various activities that take place in this exciting space.’

The Vauxhall Gasworks building was built in the late 1800s. It was converted to artists’ studios in 1994, before which it was used as an industrial space and a christmas tree depot.
