Centred in Tottenham


Elsie Owusu Architects, with technical architectural support from Chapman Taylor Partners, has submitted a planning application for the £80 million International Centre for Performing Arts in Tottenham, North London.

Developed in collaboration with Discovery Properties, the centre is believed to be Europe's first integrated multi-cultural arts and leisure complex. Its 55,230m2 includes a 4000-seat arena with broadcast facilities and multi-media centre, a 1000-seat traditional theatre and a 300-seat experimental 'black box' theatre, a 12-screen multiplex cinema for Warner Village, a night-club and a conference centre, health-club, shops and restaurants, and an 800-space multi-storey car park.

The not-for-profit International Centre for Performing Arts was created by black entertainment professionals, and chaired by constituency mp Bernie Grant who has called it 'the biggest expression of confidence in Tottenham for many years'.

Haringey Council and English Partnerships provided backing.
