Brickwork and brick windows form the architectural basis of this former tobacco factory. Redeveloped in 2010 to house the Hanson Street branch of Wasps artists' studios, it was the first purpose built venue of its kind in Scotland. Inside, it's as bright, light and airy as you'd expect a studio space to be, with a stonking 77 studios and 4000 sq ft of project space. Wasps is dedicated to offering low cost, high quality studio space to artists and makers in Scotland, and with 17 such spaces throughout the country, from Shetland to Kirkcudbright, they're doing a good job of it. The Hanson Street outpost regularly hosts exhibitions and open days, for a behind the scenes glimpse at how it all works.
