Façades of Artistry: Displaying creativity on the building’s visual canvas

This thesis turns the façade of South Bank’s Bargehouse into an artist community hub by upending creative pods, tailored for Coin Street Community artists, to amplify their visibility. Bridging architecture and art, these prototypes hold the potential to transform comparable adaptive reuse buildings, emphasising enhanced circulation, ventilation and spatial efficiency.
