Southwark scheme helps dancers get in step

  • Comment
news

Paxton Locher Architects has designed London's first dedicated dance rehearsal space, for use both by commercial companies and for the up-and- coming, with the former subsidising the latter. Called the Jerwood Space, the building, in a converted Victorian school in Southwark, is supported by the Jerwood Foundation and a £1.4 million grant from the Arts Lottery fund.

The architect had originally been looking for a new-build site for its client, but the school proved ideal, with the four large, high-ceilinged classrooms suitable for dance rehearsal rooms, with the addition of sprung floors, and smaller spaces for conversion into back-up facilities. In addition to converting the main building, the architect has created a new entrance area which includes an art gallery and a cafe. The Jerwood Space opens in July.
