York Theatre Royal, Yorkshire

A competition winning design to refurbish and improve the stage, stalls and front of house facilities at this Grade II* listed theatre. The building has been altered and extended several times and includes two Scheduled Ancient Monuments which formed part of a medieval monastery, and an award-winning 1967 concrete foyer extension by Architect Patrick Gwynne. Despite preliminary investigations, the early site works were complicated by much more extensive and exceptionally significant archaeological remains of the medieval hospital. This required rapid redesign to maintain programme and budget while making the most of the design opportunities. Funding contributions were secured from the Arts Council England. 

Completed 2016.
