Oxford School of Drama, Oxfordshire

Rehearsal studios, a small studio theatre, a new storage block and the conversion of an existing studio into offices were created over four project phases. The expression and form of the design took inspiration from the existing farm buildings. A frameless glass screen and an architectural steel and timber staircase create their own sense of drama in the entrance foyer. Sustainable features including the use of local materials, high levels of insulation, passive ventilation and low-energy underfloor heating were incorporated into the design.
