Angel Building Islington
The Angel Building in Islington is a restrained piece of enlightened modern architecture by the award-winning AHMM, containing over 250,000 sq ft of exceptional office space. With a remarkable atrium, café and exclusively-commissioned works of contemporary art, the building enjoys exceptional views from its enormous rooftop terraces and is in a prime location where the City meets the West End.
Derwent London collaborated with our long-time client Hales Gallery to present a collection of work by four contemporary photographers for display in this fantastic space; Robin Friend, Lewis Ronald, Indre Serpytyte and Sachiyo Nishimura. Although differing enormously in approach, these photographers all tackle subjects on both grand and intimate scales, from landscape to interiors. In order to create unique and stimulating working environments, Derwent London commissions artists and carefully considers their involvement in building design from an early stage.
Our team were delighted to design and produce a bespoke aluminium framing solution for this collection of stunning photography, complementing the sleek modernism of the space and the contemporary subject matter of the artwork. The concrete walls of the building presented our installation technicians with a unique challenge, requiring a bespoke rail system on which to suspend the works. Begun in early 2011, the photography on display in this space continues to expand and we are thrilled to maintain our involvement.
