Jerwood Space is a striking corten clad steel and glass roof extension forming a suite of rehearsal rooms on the site of an old school in Southwark. The upper floor glazed enclosure reflects the passing clouds during the day, while at night the volume is illuminated, acting as an advertisement signalling the presence of the facility. A gallery, restaurant and ancillary facilities are also contained within the converted volume of the existing Victorian structure.
Great care was taken in the construction to ensure the careful detailing required by the design team could be executed successfully on site. The project received a Civic Trust Award commendation in 2009.
