The special feature of the Deptford Voice Centre is perhaps its lack of any one specialised space. With a broad range of users and an exciting, ever-changing brief, the spaces within the centre have to work hard to be ultra flexible to meet the needs of the people who use it. The image above shows a lecture being held in the assembly hall, where only the walls and columns are permanently fixed, and the stage, furniture and lighting can all be quickly altered to suit the needs of the users within the space. Such an attitude allows the same room to be used as a quite reading zone, an area for discussion and a place for public conference all within the same day.
