THE HOSPITAL

Camden, London

Allies and Morrison were commissioned in 1996 to develop the site of a former hospital in London’s Covent Garden. The scheme combines a series of industry uses into a unique combination within a single building envelope. These consist of a large sound stage, TV and video production studio, a professional recording studio and screening room both containing sound editing and dubbing capabilities, a members club and restaurant with some over-night accommodation, a public restaurant, art gallery and retail outlet, and conferencing facilities. These different activities are organised horizontally within this new building which is located on a conservation area and is adjacent to Grade II Listed buildings.
