We have submitted a planning application to adapt and extend Longfield Hall in Camberwell. The Hall is a venue for theatre and dance and accommodates a nursery, several churches, and a dance school. It is part of the Minet Estate in Camberwell, which provided housing for all social classes and incorporated a large number of public buildings around Myatt’s Field’s Park. In the 1970s it was home to the Dark & Light Theatre Company, the first publicly funded Black theatre in the UK.

Good Growth Fund
198 Contemporary Arts & Learning supports artists, curators, and young people from BAMER communities. Our project for their new art gallery, education and enterprise space in Herne Hill has been awarded £475,000 from the Mayor's Good Growth Fund.
Sadiq Khan, said: “I am using this funding to challenge preconceptions about how regeneration takes place. I want to give all Londoners – regardless of background – the opportunity to be actively involved in their city and have more places to live, learn, work and play. The projects I announced funding for today will help us to tackle inequality, strengthen civil society, and ensure the benefits of regeneration are felt by all.”

A lightweight canopy structure provides shading, lighting, and privacy for medical staff working within the main atrium space, looking over Archbishop’s Park.
The design was developed with Structure Workshop and fabricated by Wyliewood. Photo by Max Creasy.
