About The Project
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.
