Hauser + Wirth 'Shed Project'

The 'Shed Project' is a competition run by Hauser + Wirth Somerset, a contemporary art gallery and venue in Bruton, Somerset. The competition seeks a young architect to realise a scheme at the site of their Maltings building within the town centre to provide additional space for an Artist in Residence.

Our scheme titled the Pasmore Studio is based on a piece of work by the seminal British Artist Victor Pasmore. His composition 'Linear Motif Black and White' from the 1960's acts as the starting point, providing the basis for an architectural plan creating a variety of working, painting, preparing, sleeping and storing spaces, all within a building set 750mm into the landscape.
