Madder Gallery & Apartment EC1

This art gallery on Whitecross Street London EC1 is a conversion of two adjacent Georgian houses, and comprises a double-height basement gallery and rear courtyard with 2 flats above.

Madder Gallery sits on Whitecross Street in Clerkenwell, and its creation led to the rejuvenation of the rest of a derelict Georgian Terrace and to a number of public realm improvements.

The new facade received a Heritage and Economic Regeneration Scheme Grant from English Heritage administered by Islington Council. Our task was to open up the gallery to street, enabling large scale artworks to be installed, whilst maintaining its relationship with the flats above.

The gallerist’s apartment above the gallery has a private external courtyard at 1st floor that is contained within the section of the top-lit gallery space. It is painted "Madder Red".
