Carpenters Workshop Gallery's new London space
The Carpenters Workshop Gallery's new cultural space in Ladbroke Hall – Notting Hill – promises to engage with art in all its forms and it is stunning.
The brainchild of two childhood friends, Loïc Le Gaillard and Julien Lombrail, the gallery currently showcases design pieces from David Adjaye, Jose Zadine Caldas and Maarten Baas as well as jewellery from Cindy Sherman.
Four years in the making, the space will soon welcome a restaurant headed by chef Emanuel Pollini, a members club, a recording studio and a garden.
'It will not only be a place to see great art and design, but to dine on great food and listen to and record great music. We will dance the tango, listen to jazz and wander the landscaped gardens and roof terrace. It will be a place to meet interesting people and explore creativity in all its forms,' said Julien Lombrail.
The restaurant should open in September. In the meantime, you can visit the gallery all summer. And don't miss the small salons displaying works of Basquiat and DRIFT that have been designed by the Italian architect Vincenzo De Cotiis and the artist Ingrid Donat.
