Visualisation of the Former Peckham Road Fire Station

View of proposed exterior of the former Peckham Road Fire Station by 6a architects

We are restoring the former Peckham Road Fire Station to transform it into an inspiring new model of contemporary art space and annexe to the South London Gallery's main site, opening in September 2018.

This Fire Station will double the size of the South London Gallery and transform the ways in which we can support and profile the work of British and international artists; enable thousands more people to benefit from our education projects; and enrich our visitors’ experience and understanding about contemporary art.


With just under four months until the Fire Station launches we still have £350,000 to raise by September. Part of our strategy to achieve this is a campaign with the Art Fund’s Art Happens crowdfunding platform which is running until midnight on Monday 2 July.


We aim to raise at least £25k through the crowdfunder to kit out the Fire Station with furniture and equipment. Donations from £5 to £4,995 are accepted, with a range of benefits on offer. We won’t receive any of the money unless the campaign hits its £25k target.

With designs by award-winning 6a architects, the Fire Station will be a beautiful mixed-use building over four floors providing gallery spaces, an archive room, artist’s studio, communal kitchen and terrace, combined with community and education facilities. Find out more about our plans and the history of the Fire Station.


You can donate below or contact us if you would prefer to make a donation by cheque, bank transfer or using CAF vouchers.  Please get in touch if you would like to find out more about naming a room at the Fire Station, supporting the project through your company or joining a Fire Station giving circle for those donating £1,000 and above.


With thanks to the Heritage Lottery Fund, Mayor of London, Arts Council England and all the trusts, foundations, companies and individuals that have supported the project so far.
