Cornubian Arts & Science Trust, Helston


The Cornubian Arts & Science Trust (CAST) provides studio space for artists and is a hub of creative activity in West Cornwall.


Since 2015 we have provided architectural support to CAST as part of the ongoing development of their former school building on a prominent site in central Helston. The proposals include a new public café and prep kitchen, ourdoor terrace, a flexible events and community space, enhanced facilities for practicing artists and visitors, and improved access to the building.


Our design work enabled CAST’s successful application to Arts Council England’s Small Capital Grants scheme in 2017, and achieved planning consent for the proposals. The works are being carried out in phases, with phase 1 completed in 2018.
