An exciting project to convert an under-used student union building into a contemporary lecture theatre. The design reconfigured the existing internal accommodation to form a flexible lecture theatre with retractable seating. The front-of-house was enlarged and a new core structure, housing the plant, control room and amenities, was built to separate the two. A large digital screen in the foyer allows for audio visual artworks and performances to be displayed. The overall effect is an elegant, multifunctional building suitable for performances, teaching and ad hoc creative activities.
