"Deptford Does Art" Gallery

New High Street Gallery Space



YOU&ME have been appointed by London Borough of Lewisham to design and build an exemplary gallery / shopfront for Deptford High Street. The design takes cues from traditional shopfronts found along the high street and demonstrates attention to craftsmanship and detail.

The new High Street unit will house local arts organisation ‘Deptford does Art’, a community art gallery in Deptford helping local artists showcase and sell their work. When done, the beautiful basement gallery space will exhibit locally created art and also have a cafe and bar. With a rich program of workshops and talks there will be much to see and plenty of opportunity to get involved, be creative and meet like minded people from the community.

YOU&ME are working with locally-based fabricators Aldworth James & Bond, a diverse group of makers, tradespeople, specialist joiners and shopfitters to deliver this project.
