Photography Studio for Juergen Teller by 6A Architects
Alexander Zaxarov
Dec 6, 2020

German-born Juergen Teller, who is known for his fine art as well as fashion photography, commissioned London practice 6a Architects to design his new studio on a long and narrow plot.

The study designed by 6th Architechts is actually composed by 3 buildings, a studio, offices and the file archives, designed around 2 courtyards. The curtains, in different opacities, allow to control the natural light adapting exposure for each space. The project is presented sober, in raw concrete and different bricks to distinguish exterior and interior, objects and details are in aluminum completing the industrial character.

With few views possible out of the linear site, daylight is introduced through three courtyard gardens designed by Dan Pearson, and a grid of exquisitely thin concrete beams which march the length of the 60m site. These support north facing roof lights which fill the space with an extraordinary filtered light.

"The gardens are inspired by the urban gardens that spring naturally in ruinous or untouched corners of the city – especially those captured by R S R Fitter's classic book, London's Natural History," explained the architects.

The project is a mature and confident statement of orderliness and precision, whilst also being relaxed and playful. It forms a refined, yet flexible workplace, which is already beginning to act as a setting to prompt and influence on the work of its client.
