English National Ballet
by Glenn Howells Architects

Hufton + Crow

Glenn Howells Architects has built a dance school for the English National Ballet, which features bright, open spaces for the dance studios.

English National Ballet has relocated to the purpose-built dance factory in east London. The new building significantly expands their accommodation by providing eight new rehearsal spaces, one of which has full stage rigging facilities.

The design of the building opens up the activities of the school to the public through the incorporation of large windows onto public spaces and through external performance spaces.


This project has been longlisted in the cultural building category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
