Greenwich Borough Halls

Client: Greenwich Dance Agency

Year: 2007

The Greenwich Dance Agency provides facilities for professional dance companies and community arts groups. The Grade II listed Borough Halls form part of the Town Hall complex in the centre of Greenwich which was completed in 1938. Tim Foster Architects was asked to prepare a report analysing the potential for renovation and the provision of dedicated dance studios within the building. Following input from structural engineers and a quantity surveyor, the report identified and evaluated a number of possible sites for the location of the studios and advised on sympathetic alterations to the foyer areas. The study concluded that the roof of the building provided the most viable location for the studios and would provide superb views out over docklands and Greenwich. The report will now form the basis of discussions between building users and owners over future direction and fund raising.
