This video tour published in collaboration with Open House London offers a look inside the dynamic and tactile Siobhan Davies Dance Studio, designed by Sarah Wigglesworth Architects.

The movie, filmed by Ed Bishop, is one of a series of videos that are being published on Dezeen throughout the festival to spotlight unusual and overlooked places in the capital.

Siobhan Davies Dance Studio was completed by Sarah Wigglesworth Architects in 2006 within the shell of a derelict brick school building in south London.It is distinguished by the timber-lined vaults of its roof, which undulates over the top of the existing building and was designed as a nod to the movements of dancers below.

In this video, the architecture studio’s founder, Sarah Wigglesworth, offers a tour of the studio and sheds light on the concepts behind its design.”The ideas behind it were looking at the relationship between architecture and dance,” explained Wigglesworth.
