...integrating technical excellence into a historic building

Camden Roundhouse


Project summary


An engine maintenance shed, a gin warehouse, a theatre, a rock gig venue; the Roundhouse has been all of these and more since it was built in the middle of the 19th century.


John McAslan and Partners were commissioned by the Roundhouse Trust to convert an 1850's structure into a performing arts building for the 21st century, housing a new studio theatre and creative centre while maintaining and improving the main space's unique character.


Charcoalblue's directors were the lead technical consultants from the beginning of the project and oversaw the project from design to completion on site, in collaboration with Theatre Projects Consultants.
