The Yardhouse by Turner Prize-winning architects Assemble has been dismantled and gone on sale, to be rebuilt elsewhere. Originally constructed as the collective’s workspace in Stratford, east London, the building received international press as a concept for temporary architecture, and countless Instagram posts due to its facade of pastel-coloured concrete tiles.
Assemble originally conceived the building to experiment with how plots of land with short-term vacancies can be used as workplaces and studios. It was therefore designed to be taken apart and reassembled on other sites.
It’s formed of a modular structure, with a square plan split across two storeys and three bays on either side of a central double-height atrium. These bays could then be used as individual studios, linked by the communal space in the middle.
The building is being sold through The Modern House for £150,000.
