We were awarded the project by Alumno Developments at the existing Southwark Town Hall and Theatre Peckham. This involved the conversion of the existing town hall to Student Accommodation, Artist Studios and a Café.

A large number of existing features have been retained. There is a new side extension incorporating a new theatre with 5 floors of new student accommodation above. A total of 155 bed spaces have been provided.

A new roof pavilion has been constructed over the existing building and the new student accommodation. Special features included a multi-faceted ceramic tiled façade to the theatre and a new roof pavilion clad in backlit polycarbonate.
