Rich Mix Centre

The project was to convert a derelict building and to construct a new cinema complex to the rear.

Rich Mix is an arts and community centre in Shoreditch featuring the best live music, theatre, dance, visual arts and cinema from established and emerging artists, performers and musicians, presented across three performance spaces and a three-screen cinema in a landmark five-floor Shoreditch home.

The work was funded by the London Development Agency, Arts Council of England and Millennium Commission. Delivery of the project became problematic in the early stages, and Derek was appointed to represent the funders in intervening to recover the situation to ensure delivery of the scheme.
