Bath Artists’ Studios
This scheme uses planar arched walls perpendicular to the river to form the building, while the level of road approach is extended as a roof terrace over the river. The more transient public programme such as the cafe and gallery is on the lower level of the riverside towpath, beneath this roof, while the artist studios and workshops occupy more fixed zones on upper levels between the planar walls of arches. Relationships of solid and void are explored as dynamic, shifting qualities between the frameworks of the walls.
