The Hotwalls Studios, Old Portsmouth

The Hotwalls Studios scheme involved the refurbishment of the 15th century Point Battery ‘arches’ in Old Portsmouth. It created a facility that would support the arts and crafts culture in the city and in addition, attract visitors and generate new jobs and opportunities.

Art Studios

The former artillery barracks was carefully renovated because of its Grade I listed status. The mechanical and electrical services were upgraded to support the creation of 13 no. art studios, and a deli-style café, whilst taking the buildings heritage into consideration. In addition, the existing public facilities and associated services were replaced and upgraded, and a new external lighting scheme was designed and installed.

The Hotwalls project has been shortlisted for the RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) South 2017 Awards.
