Channing School, London
A simple, elegant auditorium
Working with architects Buckley Gray Yeoman, we designed this 300 seat, performance facility for Channing School in Highgate, North London, which opened in 2018. The school aims to provide a stimulating and rewarding environment where students are given the chance to excel in the performing arts.
With cost-effectiveness in mind, Theatreplan designed a simple galleried auditorium, with retractable seating providing for maximum flexibility and adaptability. Additional fixed gallery seating on two levels can be easily removed to accommodate the temporary use of sound and other technical equipment.
The technical infrastructure is of sufficient specification to allow the theatre to host semi-professional productions, whilst at the same time being easily operated by staff and students.
