The new Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts in Peckham will be clad in Cor-ten. 

Currently tucked away on an industrial estate in Wood Green, North London, Mountview Academy is expanding to a new purpose-built site in Peckham. The site will house two new landmark buildings which have been designed by Carl Turner Architects and built by Gilbert-Ash contractors.

The building has been designed with a ‘pleated’ veil of perforated Cor-ten, specified from Cadisch MDA’s Welltec range. For the first time the school will have the facilities that match the world-class quality of their training.

The new site offers space to expand the community programme, provides two new theatres that will house public productions and will also include lettable rehearsal and office space for the creative industries, as well as a new café and rooftop bar. The Academy predicts that it will welcome over 250,000 visitors to the building each year and bring in an estimated £13.7m annually to the local community.

Mountview commented that: “[the] new building will be a game changer for the school, local area and the UK’s creative industry as a whole.”

The architectural development is a substantial progression from the current premises, which no longer fall in line with the Academy’s ambition and vision. It inspires creativity and interaction from the inside out.

The folded rainscreen mesh is currently being installed on site by Gilbert Ash contractors and the cladding is already starting to show signs of weathering. The entire project is due to complete in September 2018.
