National Opera Studio
Transforming an historic building and centre of operatic excellence
The National Opera Studio commissioned Beep Studio to refurbish its centre of operations in Wandsworth, South West London in time for its 40th anniversary celebrations in 2018.
NOS provides the highest quality professional training for singers and ‘répétiteurs’ - operatic accompanists. Places are highly contested, with 16 successful candidates selected from hundreds of applicants. An intense training programme reflects the environment of the professional opera world, and many NOS-trained artists have gone on to build successful international careers.
Beep Studio's proposal refocuses the life of NOS by creating pleasant communal spaces for staff and students alike, activated and enhanced by the life of the Studio, and by the visual culture of the operatic world beyond.
The refurbishment project had the following goals:
• To encourage a culture of creativity
• To open up spaces for wider use
• To attract the best students and staff
• To reflect and enhance their work
The project was made possible through the generous support of Desso UK.
