Bennetts Associates' London studio will be open to the public on Saturday 16 September, from 10am-4pm, as part of Open House London 2017. The RIBA Award-winning architects' office combines a revitalised group of redundant industrial buildings and an 18C barn with new contemporary elements.
This is also an opportunity to see the exhibition: '30 Images from 30 Years in Practice'. Bennetts Associates has selected 30 projects from its last 30 years in practice. One distinctive image from each project has been chosen by the photographers originally commissioned by the practice, promising a unique look at the relationship between architecture and photography over the last three decades.
The Shaftesbury Theatre, with its new flytower by Bennetts Associates will also be open to visitors (tours of backstage areas led by theatre/project team members every 30 mins from 9am-11.30am on Saturday 16 September).
2012 – 2016
A dramatic new flytower has appeared on the skyline of London’s West End. The project entailed building a 35-tonne capacity flytower plus offices and plant on top of an existing theatre that had to remain operational at all times.
2003 (phase 1), 2013 (phase 2)
Over a period of ten years Bennetts Associates revitalised a group of properties in Clerkenwell, in central London – two redundant industrial buildings and a former restaurant – and connected them with a new-build extension.
