Royal College of Art Painting building opens
Jannuzzi Smith have designed and produced the signage for the Royal College of Art’s new Painting building in Battersea, London. The building is the latest development in the College’s expanding Battersea campus, for which Jannuzzi Smith have developed an overall branding and signage strategy. The signage uses energy-efficient LED lighting and features the typeface Cal, designed by Jannuzzi Smith as a sans-serif font to accompany Calvert (by Margaret Calvert), used in the College’s logotype.
The building, designed by architects Haworth Tompkins with funding from The Dr. Mortimer and Theresa Sackler Foundation, houses some of the finest new artists’ studios in the UK, with working spaces for 56 students, an exchange studio and visiting artist studio, seminar rooms, workshops and offices.
