You are virtually unaware of the hostile traffic outside

Niall McLaughlin Architects for LAMDA
Contract value: Undisclosed
Sandwiched between the noisy Talgarth Road and an open London Underground line, the site appears wrong for a brief that requires a quiet and vibration-free environment for dance, theatre and TV recording. Once within the building however, you are virtually unaware of the hostile traffic outside. Exterior and interior have the same robust simplicity. The high level of control and co-ordination both of material choice and service integration are to be applauded, particularly given the constrained budget. This new building has allowed LAMDA to extend both its educational and its community ambitions.
