The redevelopment of our Creative Production House led by DSDHA has won a RIBA London award in recognition of its environmentally conscious & inclusive design.

RIBA said of the project: "The jury found the enthusiasm and sense of purpose of this particular set of clients second to none.  Theirs is a mission that inspires and convinces, particularly in this dark hour of economic need, when so many youngsters are in search of a meaning in life."

We're very grateful to all who worked on the project and our supporters who made it possible.

The transformation of the building has been designed by internationally acclaimed architects DSDHA, working with Gardiner and Theobald, Access=Design, cc|be,  Sound Space Vision, Gerald Eve, David Akera Engineering and Neilcott Construction. 

We are very grateful to these organisations who are supporting the redevelopment of our home to create a National Production House for Young People: the Mayor of London's Good Growth Fund, The Kirby Laing Foundation, Arts Council England, London Marathon Charitable Trust, the Christina Smith Foundation and City Bridge Trust, the City of London Corporation’s charitable funder, London Borough of Islington and Green Hall Foundation. We’re also incredibly grateful to Michael Bonehill and Edward Duthie Shamash for their pro-bono legal support, which we couldn’t have redeveloped the building without and to our all who volunteered their time, especially our young members who co-designed the project with us, our Trustees and Youth Trustees who offered their time and expertise so generously and Rob Halliday.
