Turner Works for Mountview
Contract value: £22.5m
Cost per m2: £2,210
Mountview, previously based in north London, serves as a vocational performing and production arts academy with public theatres and as a new creative arts and training hub for the Peckham community. The black brick clad theatre block has a 200 seat theatre, workshops, 21 dance and acting studios, TV/radio suites and lettable workspaces. Many cultural and educational institutions look in on themselves but Mountview is open minded to the demands and changes needed when working with the future generation. The building is connected to a wider urban regeneration project for the area. The ground floors of the various public buildings are treated as part of the square, while the whole building is fully wheelchair accessible.
