We are blogging right now from Venice, at the very awesome State of Art Academy Day 8 event! As this post goes live Alex and Iain will be giving a talk about the studio and showing what we've been up to for the last year or so.

For those of you not able to join us at the event you can watch our brand new studio 2017 reel right here, to catch a glimpse of what we're about and what we do. Enjoy!

Also be sure to check out our Instagram and Facebook channels over the next few days, as we post from Venice. We'll also be checking out the Biennale and posting from our favourite exhibitions on Sunday.


V&A Exhibition Road Quarter

The Recent Spaces team headed down to the V&A for the opening of Amanda Levete Architects' new V&A Exhibition Road Quarter, comprising a spectacular new entrance, courtyard and gallery space for temporary exhibitions. Part of the REVEAL festival, on display was Simon Heijdens' "Shade" at the newly-designed Sainsbury Gallery. Below is a short film we shot at the opening night along with a few photos taken by Alex, Iain and Simon from the Recent Spaces team. We highly recommend you make the trip over!

Recent Spaces Turns One!

It's been a truly amazing first year for the studio. We've worked with some of the world's best known and respected architects, designers and photographers, developers, design agencies and agents, on a huge variety of unique projects all over the world, and of course we've had the pleasure of working with some of the most talented artists too.

We were fortunate enough to spend our 1st anniversary with some of our friends and colleagues over a few games of pool, some seriously spicy wings and a few Kozels (We're a Corona Renderer studio and RS co-founder Alex's wife is Czech so Czech beer is more or less mandatory!).

Here's to an incredible year and many more ahead!

A massive thank you to our great friends and talented photographers Simon Migaj and David Connolly. Thanks chaps!
