Everyman Theatre, Liverpool

The Everyman Theatre is a much loved centre for modern vibrant theatrical productions. Together with Haworth Tompkins as architects, we have completed a £13.9m redevelopment.

The scheme consists of a new complex reinforced-concrete framed structure incorporating a 450 seat auditorium, theatre and community space, and a bistro in the basement. The auditorium uses natural ventilation to control its environment, which is a challenge in itself given the atypical nature of the space but goes some way to providing the efficiencies to attain a BREEAM Excellent standard. We also acted as heritage advisers on the scheme.

The project was awarded the Stirling Prize 2014.
