• Architect: Heatherwick Studios
  • Location: Aberystwyth, Wales
  • Client: Aberystwyth University

Construction began in February 2008 on a cluster of eight creative arts business studios nestled in the woodland setting of the Aberystwyth Arts centre.

Working closely with the Heatherwick Studio, a design was developed for these single storey units incorporating a unique stainless steel cladding system which sheaths a prefabricated timber framed structure beneath. The stainless steel is in the form of a fine foil, 'dimpled' on a purpose made rolling machine and backed with spray-on polyurethane foam.

In 2010 the Aberystwyth Art studios received the Civic Trust Award, and a 2010 RIBA Regional Award.
