Camden Arts CentreThe Camden Arts Centre has become a prime location for top class arts exhibitions thanks to a radical renovation in 2007. The design, by Tony Fretton Architects, created a modern, light and spacious venue while retaining many original features such as the entrance arches, terrazzo flooring and tall, stone dressed windows. Meanwhile muf, a collaborative practice of art and architecture committed to public realm projects and the artist representatives on the building design team, have ensured that the voices of both artists and visitors have remained central to the redevelopment scheme. There's a fantastic spacious terrace area stretching from the cafe and a dedicated reading area where the Centre's archive and research facilities accumulate.
