The eagerly awaited £16.7 million development on our Swiss Cottage campus includes a state-of-the art building comprising a studio dedicated to film, media and digital work and 5 new high ceiling rehearsal spaces. These new facilities give Central s great opportunity to provide an outstanding environment for our students, ensuring they have access to cutting edge, modern amenities that will further enhance their training. The development also houses a new public theatre, cementing the School's reputation as a cultural hub in north London.
Working with our industry partners, the North Block's industry-leading new studio and theatre spaces are equipped with a range of sustainable, LED lighting and professional audio equipment. It houses state-of-the art digital infrastructure, enabling students to engage with the fast-developing worlds of integrated show-control and both video and audio networking. In addition, the brand new, acoustically-isolated, two story Sound Stage expands Central's media production capability, providing a facility for students, staff and industry to explore and develop the intersections between digital and live space, and between theatre, dramaturgy, gaming and virtual reality.
The North Block, designed by the award-winning team at Tim Ronalds Architects, proves Central with a major increase in rehearsal and performance spaces for students, as well as creating a new asset for the local community.
