The Civic Trust Awards have named English National Ballet as a Winner in their 2021 awards. The transformational building is one of only 24 projects to be given the award this year from a prestigious shortlist.
The judges’ commented that the project was “Beautifully crafted, thoughtfully considered and a beautiful addition to the street scene and Britain’s cultural landscape”.

The translucent building was conceived as a workshop that allows ENB to practice, plan and develop productions. It provides seven rehearsal spaces, a new production studio with full height fly-tower and stage rigging, costume atelier workshop and state of the art rehabilitation suite and hydrotherapy pool.
The project has now won a total of seven accolades and is still shortlisted in the RIBA Awards which will be announced later in the year.
