The RIBA award winning Siobhan Davies Studios, nestled just beyond London’s busy South Bank, is a contemporary arts space housed in a converted Victorian school. By hiring the space it can be reinvented to suit your tastes and ideas. With the mix between the modern and old, intimate and expansive, Siobhan Davies Studios has the potential to be the perfect backdrop to your event.
Siobhan Davies Studios boasts some of South London’s most impressive architectural spaces. Originally built in 1898 as a school annex, architect Sarah Wigglesworth purposefully redesigned the building as a flexible event space in 2006. Her intention to bring life to an old building in a sustainable and innovative way, without erasing the footprint of the existing building, was successfully realised.
Spaces include the Roof Studio, a large, airy space with spectacular views of the city located on the second floor. Its repeated curved shell ribbons that form the roof and walls allow daylight to enter the space, producing a lively and stimulating environment that is also a focused and neutral setting. It is isolated physically and acoustically from the bustle of the world outside and, although the studio conveys a sense of uninterrupted space, it is still able to provide intimacy.
The Research Studio, a smaller space on the first floor, is a blank canvas of white walls and large windows. Other spaces available for public use and hire include a Meeting Room, Parlour, Kitchen, a ground floor reception area, the Dancers’ Informal Space and a Balcony on the first floor.
