Year: 2015 (ongoing)

The new Ovalhouse theatre in Brixton forms part of the Somerleyton Road development and provides an exciting creative centre where the work of Ovalhouse can continue to flourish. Seven new flexible studio spaces will accommodate a range of performance, rehearsal and community events.  A large foyer with café and bar fronts Coldharbour Lane and Somerleyton Road, providing a public space for people to meet throughout the day. The building will be fully wheelchair accessible and incorporates a number of environmental benefits, including natural ventilation and a biodiversity green roof with photo-voltaic panels. The whole structure is designed as an open and robust working space where performance, rehearsal, production and conversation inter-mingle and overlap.

Planning Permission was granted in December 2015.
