Winner of one of this year’s AIA UK Excellence in Design Awards, the Rambert building provides a home for the company to hone its craft, create new productions and make dance more widely accessible. Clean, crisp and clean lines define the architecture for this narrow seven-storey building that will eventually have two permanent neighbours. It is the latest addition to the vibrant cultural district at London’s South Bank.
Light-filled dance studios, changing rooms and offices are raised above a generous ground floor, allowing touring truck access at the rear and a welcoming entrance space with archive and public reading room below.
The sectional arrangement exploits the mix of single and double-height spaces, allowing permeability and views between them. A central courtyard optimises natural light and ventilation, while also acting as a social focus for the life of the building.
