New Hackney theatre to be built sustainably

A new London arts venue is set to have sustainability at the centre of its construction planning.

The eco-friendly Arcola Theatre is set to be constructed close to the Dalston Square development at the Dalston Junction East London Line station.

Funded by the London Development Agency, the project forms part of the wider Making Space in Dalston scheme.

Plans include two 150 and 80 seat studios, space for scientists and engineers to develop sustainable technologies, solar panels and a public garden and growing facilities.

Commenting on the plans, councillor Guy Nicholson said: “The Council is committed to supporting Arcola’s ambition to create an innovative new ecotheatre; ensuring that Arcola continues to contribute to the cultural excitement that is Dalston.”

It follows the shortlisting of new plans to transform the Lower Lea Valley park, which will become one of six new green areas between the Olympic site and the River Thames by 2012.ADNFCR-2805-ID-19563567-ADNFCR
