A new teaching building for the Harrow Arts Centre. This building creates 3 large teaching and community use rooms and 8 private artist’s studios for rent. This building will replace several dilapidated temporary classrooms that are dotted around the campus and creates an invaluable revenue stream for the HAC.

The building’s L-shaped plan and corrugated corten cladding reflect the agricultural nature of the east end of the HAC campus, which was once a farm for a rural boarding school. A saw-tooth roof provides north light to all of the studios and the first floor teaching room. The ground floor teaching rooms open out onto a courtyard, allowing teaching to take place outdoors in good weather.
