HoughtonBudd Architects

In response to an invitation by the Hannah Barry Gallery proposals were made for a year round base for their acclaimed Bold Tendencies art festival, sited in a multi-storey car park in central Peckham. The building provided an infrastructure of clean, secure and functional spaces that supported the range of activities that the event required. Situated within an old furniture store that now being used as gallery space the Project Base was articulated as a building within a building, a room within a room; a simply detailed timber construction clad in unfinished cement board and topped by a lantern that both responded to the existing building’s form and offered a particular interior character. The project was led by Andrew Budd and completed by postgraduate architecture students at Kingston University.
