Project Review

Hospitalfield

6th May 2022

Director Rod Heyes and Project Architect Paula Schilliger present the practice’s masterplan for Hospitalfield House in Arbroath, Scotland, as part of the Architecture Foundation's series of talks exploring the typology of the artist's studio.

Since 1900, the house has been a significant cultural site for Scottish artists, hosting residencies and education programmes. In 2015, Caruso St John was asked to design a masterplan for the site, renovating the historic artist studios and inserting new interventions, enabling the organisation to realise its vision as a publicly accessible cultural resource for the twenty-first century.

The series has been developed by the Architecture Foundation in partnership with the Whitechapel Gallery to coincide with its current exhibition ‘A Century of the Artist’s Studio 1920 – 2020’ which runs until 29 May 2022.

Peter St John's London Met Unit will investigate the theme of Second Life. The term comes from the artist and social activist Theaster Gates, who states that almost everything can be reused. This is evident in his work which has involved collating discarded objects and materials, as well as salvaging and refurbishing whole buildings.

Students will look at the question of how to renew buildings; how construction can be less energy-demanding and creating systems where buildings are indivisible components in a regenerating ecological system.
