Rambert Dance Company
One of the UK’s foremost dance institutions, Rambert Dance Company, created a new £8m headquarters on London’s South Bank.
The facility includes three large dance studios, workshops, technical and administration facilities and changing rooms. There’s also a dance archive and a reading room, both of which are open to the public.
Architects Allies Morrison specified a high build quality and the changing rooms had to be in keeping with this. The architects asked Kemmlit for 60 made-to-measure lockers in a variety of sizes and colours, to accommodate all the different needs of dancers, including large bags and even some places to keep prosthetic limbs.
Corian tiles, glass type S lockers, slatted solid bench seating and a mix of yellow, blue and white colours were used to create a high quality finish.
This project came with a number of challenges, for example, to incorporate coat hooks on the outside of the lockers, while retaining strength, plus manufacturing to different sizes and colours within a tight timeframe.
The finished article is exceptional and will stand the test of time.
