As featured in May’s RIBAJ, this is paradoxically a freestanding infill building, the first of what will be a terrace of adjoining buildings by Coin Street Community Builders. Three dance studios, a historic archive, equipment storage and workshops, administration and a secret courtyard form the ingredients of a split-level surprisingly deep building for this touring dance company which ‘has the air of a monastic institution’. It is simple, effortless, and beautifully crafted.
