The 100,000 square foot academy was built on a brownfield site at Eagle Wharf next to Peckham’s Stirling Prize winning library.
The part three, four and five storey building has a 200 seat main auditorium, 80 seat studio theatre and rooftop restaurant.
It also contains training facilities including 23 dance/rehearsal/acting studios, dressing rooms, singing rooms, a radio suite and 2 TV studios, commercial/retail space, together with associated service yard/services infrastructure, public realm and drainage works.
The new cultural space accommodates 400 students, up to 800 community users and 100 full-time staff.
Acoustic separation was critical. Cross talk attenuators were used to stop noise transfer in the dance studios. Bespoke acoustic vents cool the building naturally.
