Studio 3 is at the north west end of the building overlooking the beach, and sits directly underneath Studio 1. The west and north walls are masonry, it has a large north-facing window and skylight, and west-facing windows bring additional light to the back of the studio.
The footprint of the studio once included Studio 18 as well, but it was subdivided as part of the recent renovation project. Access is from the ramp down to the cellars – there are steps at the top of the ramp, and more steps down to the studio.
Previous occupants include: Cdr George Bradshaw, William Redgrave, Peter Lanyon, Francis Bacon, Alan Lowndes, Breon O’Casey, Patrick Hughes, Roy Walker, John Mitchell.
Current occupant: Naomi Frears.
