Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation

The Calouste Gulbenkian arts and education Foundation made the decision to relocate their UK offices from a traditional Georgian terraced building in Regent’s Park to a contemporary office on the ground and first floors of an existing building in Hoxton Square, East London.

Within a gloomy speculative mixed use building in Hoxton Square, a dramatic intervention was made to the first floor slab to allow natural light from a new rooflight above to permeate into the ground floor. The large double-height ground floor space accommodates receptions that are an important part of CGF work and these include art exhibitions and installations. The offices are all at first floor within glass-partitioned spaces situated around an open gallery.
