A new arts centre for school and city.
The North Wall arts centre, built in the grounds of St Edward's School, Oxford, is designed to be shared by the school and as a public cultural space. The building houses a flexible 300-seat theatre, a rehearsal space, dance studio and a visual art gallery. The design unites an ancient stone boundary wall, a Grade II listed Victorian former swimming pool and a new building, to form a carefully scaled streetscape to the public side and a new courtyard for the school.
