A transformational project for the English National Ballet (ENB) which brings state of the art cultural facilities to the heart of London City Island – a project we have been working on for the last five years with EcoWorld / Ballymore.
ENB Artistic Director, Tamara Rojo CBE, who led the design process said
“I truly believe that this is the best ballet centre in the world, which will transform the way ballet is created and open up the creative process to our audience.”
The translucent building was conceived as a workshop that allows ENB to practice, plan and develop productions. It provides seven rehearsal spaces, a new production studio with full height fly-tower and stage rigging, costume atelier workshop and state of the art rehabilitation suite and hydrotherapy pool.
The project is also home to the English National Ballet School and the layout of the building is designed to connect the two organisations for the first time – inspiring both current and future generations of dancers.
