GROUP A wins competition to design new dance centre in Nottingham. 

Rotterdam-based architectural studio GROUP A has been chosen to design a new dance facility in Nottingham, UK, after winning an international design competition backed by international dance organisation Dance4. Experimental dance team Dance4 are looking to build a world-wide orientated and renowned dance centre in the Nottingham neighbourhood of Sneinton, an area currently facing redevelopment.

GROUP A have made a design proposal which they believe is multifunctional, flexible and dynamic, and seeks to establish a strong relationship with its surroundings. To improve synergy as much as possible, GROUP A have incorporated a central social hub into their design, to act as a ‘beating heart’ for the dance centre, which is set to be part of a greater vision for upgrading the Sneinton neighbourhood.

Paul Russ, chief Executive and artistic director of Dance4 said: ‘We are thrilled to be working with GROUP A architects. Amid the formidable calibre of each of the five selected architects, it was clear that GROUP A best understood the brief and communicated their excitement and artistry through their designs. As a practice they embody the same philosophy as Dance4, seeking to deliver excellence through challenging perceptions and are clearly inspired by our ambition.’
