With support from the Scottish Arts Council Capital Lottery Fund, Aberdeen City Council and Scottish Enterprise Grampian, Wasps was able to acquire and redevelop this building in 2005.

Langstane Place, as it’s commonly referred to, sits on the road of the same name, named after the recessed standing stone at No10. The building houses 32 studios over 3 floors and currently supports 39 artists.
