Delfina Foundation

Catherine Place

Our home and facilities

Delfina Foundation’s premises consists of two Edwardian houses that have been amalgamated into one property.  It is located in Central London, only 100 metres from Buckingham Palace and walking distance to many of London's iconic landmarks, from Trafalgar Square to Big Ben, and major art spaces such as Tate Britain, Institute of Contemporary Arts, National Gallery, Royal Academy, Saatchi Gallery and National Portrait Gallery.

Delfina Foundation can accommodate up to 8 residents at any one time.  With interchangeable spaces of domestic size, the house is an ideal base for research and developing ideas.  We also consider the entire house, from the kitchen to the gallery, as 'studios', rather than having dedicated spaces solely for work.  

We prefer to host a mix of residents with a range of backgrounds, from sculptural to curatorial practices; therefore, our facilities are not equipped for specific practitioners. London does, however, offer an immense amount of resources that can be accessed for specific needs, from darkrooms to kilns.

The house includes an event and exhibition space of 1,650 square feet, where we host talks, exhibitions, screenings and other activities. The property also features a communal kitchen area, an outdoor terrace and courtyard, the foundation's offices, and a library/resource room, which includes reference books, magazines, and other archives that can be accessed by residents and the general public upon appointment.
