Rambert Dance Company, South Bank London

May 03 2010 — by Jesse Lilley
Speirs + Major has been appointed to design lighting concepts for Rambert Dance Company’s new headquarters on London’s South Bank. Working alongside architects Allies & Morrison, we will be responsible for the interior and external lit appearances of the building and gardens. One of the objectives of the design is also to facilitate the best possible use of natural light.

The move to the South Bank means dance will join music, film, theatre and the visual arts – completing a cultural circle in London’s main arts district. The Rambert project is another opportunity for us to play a part in the rebuilding of the South Bank. Previous Speirs + Major projects in the area include Queen’s Walk and the Royal Festival Hall.
