DK-CM provided Harrow Council with a comprehensive, realistic and ambitious masterplan for the expansion and consolidation of Harrow Arts Centre in 2019. The project won support from a cross-party group of councillors.
DK-CM are delivering Phase 1 of the masterplan, and works are currently on site to transform and revitalise a number of redundant or underused buildings to provide bookable space and front-of-house facilities for the Arts Centre. New buildings as proposed by the masterplan are also being commissioned.
Established in 1988, Harrow Arts Centre plays a central role in the cultural life of Harrow and the wider area, and is the only professional multi-platform venue in the London Borough of Harrow. Much-loved and highly popular, the Arts Centre campus has never benefitted from a comprehensive spatial strategy that makes the most of its many assets and opportunities.
