Lecture Theatre, Avery Hill

This design further explores the practice’s interest in the natural lighting and ventilation of lecture theatre spaces to provide flexible and comfortable environments for study. This is achieved using top light gained from separating the main body of the space from the side aisles. Electronically operated blinds provide full blackout when required. The entrances to the theatre are placed on the axes of these aisles.

Materials and finishes are kept generally neutral with the use of redwood timber contrasting with the white enclosure of the main space. The walls to the aisles are painted in pompeiian red to emphasise the inner form of the space. This lecture theatre seats 230 people and has also been designed to be suitable for musical performance.
