I frequently check out the Porthmeor Studios renovation site, I find the photographs by Graham Gaunt really inspiring the empty worn spaces are so evocative of a time passed and so full of history. Interestingly I find the earlier photographs before the renovation started more beautiful than the more recent photographs, I just love all those worn surfaces, rusty nails and broken windows. The film below is by Graham Gaunt and shows the studios in November 2011.


  1. Some lovely surfaces and colours. I watched without sound. Could really feel that breeze.

  2. Thanks for your comments Sue, Sally and Patricia. I think this would be my favourite place to have a studio looking out on the beautiful beach and sea in St Ives.

  3. Oh my goodness, what a find! That film is s u p e r b! What a fabulous building and its location, well what can I say!
    I designed a fish shop interior about 10 years ago but it was never developed but it had a back wall with a projected seascape and the sound of the sea was to play an important role too.
    Golly I love this, Sandra, thanks so much for posting it.

    1. Yes I agree Niki it's a super film and I love his photographs too. It's a pity the fish shop interior you designed wasn't developed as it sounds like a great idea.
