Battersea Arts Centre

We have been working over a number years on a rolling programme to upgrade the services, enhance the technical infrastructure and improve the thermal performance of the Grade II*-listed 6000m² Battersea Arts Centre. Initially an overall masterplan was developed and this was subsequently broken down into phases according to operational priorities and potential funding streams.

Chichester Festival Theatre

The iconic, Grade II* Listed Chichester Festival Theatre was designed by Powell and Moya and opened in 1962. Based on Tyronne Guthrie’s Festival Theatre in Stratford, Ontario, it boasted the first modern ‘thrust’ stage auditorium in the country. Over the past fifty years it has been a hugely successful and influential centre for the performing arts and has been extended on a number of occasions to address changing demands, leading to a dilution of the original design.

Donmar Warehouse - Dryden Street

The Donmar Warehouse is a leading producing theatre company in London’s Covent Garden. Having acquired a small 19th Century warehouse building in nearby Dryden Street, the theatre wanted to convert it for rehearsal, education and support facilities. The challenge was to design a convivial and creative professional working environment within the constraints of a limited budget and a tightly enclosed site set within the Covent Garden Conservation Area.

Dorset County Museum

The project is to refurbish and extend a Grade II-listed building in the centre of Dorchester’s urban conservation area to create a ‘Collections Discovery Centre’ for the Dorset County Museum. The development will create new facilities for display, education, research and the storage of reserve collections in a basement at the Museum’s site. It will bring new opportunities for audiences to search and explore the collections and associated stories, improve access to the Museum’s resources, deepen opportunities for research and further encourage public engagement. The project will support the local economy and tourism offer and create extra collecting capacity for museums across Dorset. 

Farmiloe Building

The Farmiloe Building is a Clerkenwell landmark, once home to lead and glass merchants George Farmiloe & Sons, and central to London’s heritage of trade and commerce. An exemplar of the finest Victorian architecture, completed in 1868 by Browne & Robinson, the Farmiloe building features an italianate palazzo-style frontage, executed in Portland stone and polished Aberdeen granite inside.

Freemen's School Ashtead

Skelly & Couch was appointed to provide technical input for the masterplan and outline planning application for future developments at the City of London Freemen’s School, a co-educational day and boarding school located in Ashtead Park, Surrey.

Historic Dockyard Chatham

Command of the Oceans, a major project for Historic Dockyard Chatham, has secured the repair and preservation of a range of The Historic Dockyard’s Scheduled Ancient Monuments and of the 18TH century HMS Namur archaeological find, The Ship’s Timbers.

Horniman Museum and Gardens

The project formed part of the Horniman’s wider ambition to create a better link between the museum and its gardens. The aim of the proposed new community and education building was to create an inspirational learning environment, bringing the learning experience to the outside and therefore maximising the full potential of the existing garden site.

Hoxton Hall

Hoxton Hall is a Grade II*-listed and very rare surviving Victorian music hall located on bustling Hoxton Street in East London. The building is used as a community arts centre.
