Built in Vauxhall, South London this gallery is the result of the restoration of two listed buildings once used for theater carpentry and scenery painting workshops. The Victorian look is evident. There is a lot of light inside, blue light when the weather helps, and the staircases are remarkable.
The conversion and refurbishment was designed by the Architect Caruso St John, has 37,000 square feet, six exhibition spaces and a restaurant area, created by Damien Hirst.
The project won the Stirling Prize in 2016 and was developed to fulfill the desire of Hirst himself that wanted to have a place to exhibit pieces from his personal collection of art.
