Sparkenhoe Community Theatre

In May 2001, Leicester City Council appointed Ash Sakula as architects for Sparkenhoe Community Theatre: an arts educational resource centre to enable Sparkenhoe Community Primary School and the local community to develop a live performance programme including dance and theatre, and a wide range of music, comedy, storytelling and community events.  The building was completed in February 2004 and in June received a prestigious RIBA award.

Dartington Arts Park

The following drawings are regarding a feasibility study for a Welcome Centre and Ideas Laboratory and for the refurbishment of Aller Park School in the Dartington Estate. The proposal is phased into a number of ‘parcels‘ that sensitively aim: * To reduce the dominance of the car in the centre of the estate. * To make arrival at Dartington more easily legible, and more enjoyable. * To create a more truly rural, as opposed to suburban, quality to the central campus. * To find ways of continuing Dartington’s unique experimental approach to innovative architecture while always respecting the sensitivity and fragility of the protected buildings and landscapes. * To make best possible use of Dartington’s existing buildings, supplementing them with new construction as necessary. * To counterpoint a twenty first century approach to estate planning and landscape to the more traditional approaches of the Hall and its gardens. * To design and build to the highest possible ecological standards, and to provide fully accessible environments. For more info about the project please visit:
