Firstly, it’s one of the original buildings at the V&A Waterfront. Through many transformations, it now rests as an art gallery. The Everard Read Gallery acquired the building for their new art gallery, CIRLA.

Moreover, we needed to take into consideration the rich heritage aspects and historical context of the building.
