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.

This year Unit 12, led by Peter St John, investigated the theme of Second Life, in the context of the design of buildings. Based on the belief that almost everything can have a second life, the project intends to address London's pressing need for more housing and the complex solutions for the shortage of land. The proposals for the reuse and densification of existing post-war housing stock in South London show how this can be a better solution than redevelopment.
