Avenue Studios
(Sydney Mews)


Circa 1870. Stock brick, stucco dressings, Welsh slate roofs. The studios occupy the
sites and much of the buildings of the former Cranley Mews, laid out in 1844 to serve
the houses of Onslow Square.
Two long, irregular ranges, mostly of 2 storeys, rising by half a storey in places to
give extra studio height. The ranges are linked by a long central corridor. Some sash
windows with glazing bars, some small paned casements, mostly with segmental heads.
Walls partly stuccoed. Impressive entrance of 4-panel door with sidelights, patterned
head bands, fanlight in rusticated pedimented surround.
Listed mainly for historical reasons as the workplace of many important artists, among
them Edward Poynter, Alfred Gilbert, Philip Wilson Steer, and Joseph Boehm, successor
in Royal patronage to Baron Marocchetti, the first artist to turn part of the mews into
a studio.
