Roca has amazing galleries around the world. Their London Gallery was designed by the late Zaha Hadid and her team. She did some amazing buildings around the world but I think this is the only one she did in London. She didn’t even get to do the whole building; Roca, the bathroom company, commissioned her to do a gallery for them in an existing building which was occupied throughout the work.

The material is Glass Reinforced Concrete and Glass Reinforced Gypsum. No two panels are the same and the process of making them was so complex that they had to be made in Germany and shipped to the site, still in the moulds, removed and then sanded to produce the desired effect.

I’d budgeted an hour to see this place as part of Open House London. Twice I had to unpack because I’d come across another area that is too good to miss. Just go and see it – amazing place, and the staff a friendly.

Photography Tips

Definitely wide-angle and a tripod - the light is generally subdued.

Update:
The use of tripods is not allowed inside the gallery.
Also if you planning to take a shot of the gallery with pro equipment you need to sign a form that describes the propose and future use of the shoots.

Travel Information

I took the Central Line to Shepherd’s Bush tube station and then took an overland train towards Clapham. The gallery is about 50 yards from Imperial Wharf.

There is parking around but its London, the train is easier.
