Situated between number 10 Downing Street, Piccadilly Circus and Buckingham Palace, locations don’t come more iconic: the Institute of Contemporary Arts resides on one of London’s most impressive and prominent locations, Carlton House Terrace. These remarkable buildings have been home to historic prime ministers and statesmen.
The Nash and Brandon Rooms boast access to balconies overlooking the Mall and inside view of the Corinthian columns which run the length of the building. The rooms are filled with Regency plasterwork and reflect the key attributes of Nash’s famous architecture with high and decorative ceilings and period features. They can be accessed via the grand staircase overlooking Jennie Moncur laser cut flooring.
In contrast to these classical spaces, the rest of the building has been recently stripped bare to reveal original elements of Jane Drew’s modernist architecture. Due to the robust nature of the spaces and variety of textures, ICA makes a perfect location for filming and photoshoots.
