Stunning space to create

Slightly wider than its adjoining sister studio, Ropekeepers Studio is a well-proportioned, dual-aspect space.

Like all the studios on this side of the building, it has a vaulted ceiling supported by original timber roof trusses. Two of its walls are exposed brick, punctuated by mirrors, oak ballet barres and seven large, original timber sash windows. The third is a plain, flat wall with double doors inset, and the fourth a modern acoustic partition which can be opened-up to join the room to the adjacent Stonecutters Studio to make a combined space 35 metres long. The area above the partition is glazed up to the timber roof lining, which reflects the finish of the lacquered ply resilient studio floor. The minimum clear height of 4m is to the underside of the lighting bars, and the overall height of the space is more generous still.

The space is lit by prismatic glass factory lights, and there are also production lighting bars suspended from the underside of the roof trusses, with technical power and facilities panels at either end. A PA system suitable for playback and light speech use is permanently installed in the room, which also includes an upright acoustic piano.

The Ropekeepers Studio is accessed via lift or stairs leading directly from the main entrance foyer, and there's an adjacent accessible shower and toilet, and a water refil station.

The image above shows an indicative view through the Ropekeepers Studio to the Stonecutters Studio. Please note that the maximum capacity of 140 applies to the two spaces combined.

We’re hard at work putting the finishing touches to our buildings. The images shown here are composite renders, intended to give an impression of how each space will look when complete. The rooms in our heritage buildings vary in dimension from end-to-end and the information given is for the anticipated narrowest or shortest clear dimension. The details may be subject to change when building work has finished.
