Roman Road Gallery: Renovation of a House Connected to an Art Gallery

Roman Road Gallery - Renovation of a House Connected to an Art Gallery

Roman Road Gallery is a renovation and expansion project recently completed by Threefold Architects in London, UK.

Project description: The location of the Roman Road Gallery is a narrow and contextually complex site in the heart of Bethnal Green, London. The brief for the project was both unique and challenging; to create a dynamic new gallery that was connected to the curators house and garden which are themselves and extension of the gallery space.

Threefold Architects proposed a comprehensive renovation and reconfiguration that both knitted together and existing two storey Victorian workshop and a 20th century former commercial premises on Roman Road. They also created a new single storey extension from contrasting black bricks and glass, with a brick paved courtyard garden surrounded by a combination of reclaimed masonry walls and new oxidised cor-ten metal panels, all concealed behind bespoke brick entrance gates.

The scheme utilised a restrained palette of high quality modern materials and careful detailing, to create a series of spaces for both living and the display of art that compliment the industrial character of existing buildings. Photography is by Charles Hosea
