Dovecote Studio by Haworth Tompkins

Dovecote Studio dwelling inside a ruin

Dovecote Studio by Hayworth Tompkins is a weathered steel dwelling built inside the existing structure of a Victorian dovecote in a state of ruin. Situated on the Suffolk coast, it has a glazed corner window overlooking long views of the marshes towards the sea. The structure forms part of the campus for Aldeburgh Music and is used by artists in residence or musicians for rehearsal and performance space as well as temporary exhibition space.
