Edward Alleyn Building, Alleyn's School

About The Project

We take pride in the frequency with which we do work for repeat clients. We were invited to take part in the design competition for a new Performing Arts Centre at Alleyn’s School in Dulwich by the headmaster, who had previously been head at Latymer School when we had built a theatre and arts centre there.

At both schools the priority was to create a new heart and develop a long-term masterplan, as much as it was about the new buildings. The Edward Alleyn Building includes a 350 seat theatre, teaching facilities and a studio theatre for use by the National Youth Theatre. A new terrace opens off the foyer, allowing views over the playing fields. A double quad between the new and existing school buildings creates a new focus for the school community, both physically and socially.
