More Great News for the Shaftesbury Theatre Project – Picking up small project of the year (Up to £5m) at this years Building Awards.
“This stunning new fly tower rewrites the rules about historic conservation. The original theatre is an Edwardian baroque pile whose terracotta facades are brimming with carvings and ornamentation. A conventional response might have been to cast any new intervention as a restrained supporting act to the riotous melodrama already in place. But instead this design transfuses the energy of the original into an extraordinary serrated box that now crowns the building, its exterior clad in a rusty weathered steel to reference the terracotta below.”
Well done also to the Shaftesbury project architects “Bennetts Associates” for picking up the Architectural Practice of the Year award
