Creative Business Units by Heatherwick Studio

Architects: Heatherwick Studio
Location: Aberystwyth, UK

Heatherwick Studio won a competition to design low-cost facilities for sixteen start-up arts enterprises for Aberystwyth Arts Centre, part of the University of Wales Aberystwyth. The studio was reluctant to dilute the wooded character of the site by superimposing a single campus-style block, the studio chose instead to set eight smaller buildings among the trees. These Creative Business Units consist of simple timber frame sheds, split down their centre and pulled apart to provide light and ventilation and a shared entrance area.
