Wellington College Performing Arts Centre by Studio Seilern Architects London

The proposed 1,400 seat theatre provides a flexible facility.

Proposals include a new ‘floating drum’ auditorium building attached to the college’s existing theatre. The original block will be refurbished to include a ‘black box’ theatre, dance studio, recording studio, and music practice rooms.

The space between the existing building and the new 1,400-seat auditorium will become a ‘cultural living room’ looking out on to the surrounding forest and creating a public square.

The new building will be clad in charred timber, while the link building will be covered with a deep red-coloured resin.

Set next to the Christopher Lee Theatre and across from the Mandarin Centre, the new Theatre will be the first part of a newly conceived Arts Cultural Quarter, taking in the current Theatre and Old Gym.

Jabi Lake – 25 Feb 2013
A double frontage concept: There are two distinct frontages: the road-front and the water-front. Each influences the form making of the buildings. The placement and scale of the buildings will create the identity of each and how it relates to the wider context. The Residential meets the waterfront creating a vibrant space. Residential and waterfront merge together, having a dialogue with each other.

Gota Dam Residence, Zimbabwe, Africa
Gota Dam Residence
The site for the Gota Dam property lies in the Forrester estate, an agricultural farmland one hour north of Harare. The building is situated atop a granite rock overlooking the human-made Gota Dam. The area is, to say the least, breathtaking and awe-inspiring, and deserves a piece of architecture that renders homage to its setting and beauty.

London Architects

Studio Seilern Architects (SSA) is a London-based creative practice established in 2005 by Christina Seilern. Their rich portfolio of built work spans the UK, Europe, and Africa.

Studio Seilern Architects have concentrated on producing works in East and West Africa. Currently SSA is working on 4 projects in East Africa, include a 6.538sm mixed use scheme in Lagos, a private residence in the outskirts of Lagos, a 402.059sm mixed-use Master plan in Abuja (capital city of Nigeria), and a 67.458sm residential scheme in Accra, Ghana.

SSA tackles projects on both a large and small scale, from new build to restoration works, with each project informing another. The studio believes that architecture does not just rely on innovation and design, but on the ability to deliver a project from conception through to completion. The studio’s particular expertise lies within commercial, multi-unit residential, mixed-use, master planning, and educational projects. Current projects include a master plan in Abuja, Nigeria, a private residence in Lagos, Nigeria, a mixed-use development in Lithuania, and a private residential development under planning application in central London.

Before setting up her own studio, Christina Seilern was founding director of Rafael Viñoly Architects London, responsible for RVA’s European portfolio. She has delivered a wide range of projects, from commercial high-rise and residential projects, to laboratories, performing arts spaces, and museums. Projects included 20 Fenchurch Street in London, Leicester’s Curve theatre, Colchester’s First site: New site Contemporary Arts centre, Wageningen University’s environmental research centre, and Princeton University’s Institute for Integrative Genomics.
