Co-owned by international superstar Robbie Williams, LMA provides a world-leading training environment for media, music and performing arts students. Offering a wide range of courses, LMA prides itself on the quality of its teaching professionals and high-end facilities.
Not an office, but a university centre dedicated to the performing arts and media production. A vibrant and exciting new campus for actors, producers, dancers, entertainers, singers, and musicians to learn their art and follow their passions.
The ambition was to bring everything that is unique and great about the institution in Liverpool and place it in the heart of East London. The Here East campus is the chosen location and extends LMA’s identity and reach from Liverpool and provides an amazing opportunity for students in the capital.
The 30,000 sq ft empty warehouse space at Here East provided Peldon Rose with a blank canvas to design a truly unique and bespoke environment from scratch.
From the design and install of the building infrastructure services through to the curation of furnishings and accessories, this is a space where every detail has been considered to provide a truly unique and purpose-built home for their teachers and students. The built environment provides a wide range of dance, acting, film, tv and music studios and classrooms, a central kitchen and an inspiring sense of arrival which promotes ‘this is the place to be’ to every student who walks through the door.
It was important to retain the industrial fell of the space as this was part of the charm that made LMA choose this location. We resurfaced and painted the vast concrete floors, highlighting the characteristics of the space. The building had no natural light, so we created sky lights in the 10-metre triple height reception space to lift the eye and create a voluminous feel. Industrial high-bay lights are distributed around the space to further illuminate at high-level and lift the overall lux levels.
Impressive scale structural steels were brought into the space via penetrations to the external walls. All the studios were then built and supported off this steel framework structure, that had to be painstakingly designed and installed by our structural engineering teams.
With a property of this size and a large volume of students in occupation, the fire safety designs and DDA considerations were critical. Working alongside the building control team we created safe fire escape routes and easy access without compromising our creative design visions for the space.
