Sackler Building, The Royal College of Art, London

The Sackler Building was phase one in the three phases of new buildings and alterations to the existing Royal College of Art site in Battersea. This building was for the Painting Department, involving the redevelopment and conversion of an old, single-storey 1950s factory into a series of large studio spaces by inserting a steel box into the envelope of the original building. The building has a new saw-tooth roof designed to diffuse natural light so that those working in the studio benefit both from natural daylighting and solar shading to prevent glare in their work spaces.

Completed 2009.
