Raven Row, London

Alterations to a pair of Grade I listed houses and the building behind to form a new art gallery. Entered through the restored Georgian shop front, described by Pevsner as “the best surviving example of its date in London”, the main gallery spaces were formed by lowering the floor in the 1960s concrete frame building at the rear of the site. This required pilecaps to be rebuilt at a lower level and a column to be extended downwards. Within the listed buildings the panelling returned from the Art Institute of Chicago was restored in a principal first floor room.

Completed 2009.
