Threefold Architects


  • A home for art

Threefold created a dynamic new gallery and curators house through a comprehensive renovation and extension of existing Victorian workshops on the Roman Road. 

The location of the Roman Road Gallery is a narrow and contextually complex site in the heart of Bethnal Green, London. The scheme utilised a restrained palette of high quality modern materials and careful detailing, to create a series of spaces for both living and the display of art that compliment the industrial character of existing buildings.

We created a new single storey extension from contrasting black bricks and glass, with a brick paved courtyard garden surrounded by a combination of reclaimed masonry walls and new oxidised cor-ten metal panels, all concealed behind bespoke brick entrance gates.
