Wysing Arts Centre is a thriving rural arts centre in Bourn, Cambridgeshire, providing artists studios, exhibitions and workshops for both the local community and national exhibitions. Hawkins\Brown's scheme replaces a series of dilapidated existing buildings with two distinct new buildings - a reception and a studio facility. These new forms combine with existing converted farm sheds and a grade II listed, 17th century farmhouse to define a number of external spaces of varying enclosure and character that are filled with sculpture and activity. The two-storey studio-block is set at the front of the site clarifying and advertising the arts centre, in counterpoint to the adjacent farmhouse. Although there is a clear contrast in the scale and massing of the two buildings, the principal (north) fa├žade to the studio block makes reference to the farmhouse's timber frame structure.
