Trevor Horne Architects, who have previously worked with such galleries as Victoria Miro and PEER, worked collaboratively with Charles Asprey and the gallery directors, plus a number of their artists to develop the design for this bespoke gallery space that would give a permanent home to the world renowned Cabinet Gallery.  The result is a 12 sided brick building arranged over 5 floors on the site of a former pub,  at the entrance to the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens.  Aaron Down at Trevor Horne Architects chose to use authentic clay quarry tiles both inside and outside the gallery as their natural colour would compliment the Petersen handmade bricks of the gallery building.  After looking at  samples, he selected the light multi for its variety of natural tones.

The materials pallet of timber, brick, concrete and basalt bring a variety of tones and textures to both the interior and the exterior spaces that add to the buildings presence on the edge of the gardens.  The gallery has been awarded 2017 RIBA London Award.
