The restoration of the East Wing of Alexandra Palace brings life back to the glazed East Court and 19th century Theatre through a series of sensitive, but far-reaching, interventions which will allow the Palace to fulfil its potential in hosting a diversity of uses.
The judges described the project as: “A sensitive and intelligent restoration of a theatre in north London, with a clever design strategy based on the concept of ‘arrested decay’. This has allowed a modest budget to bring a major performance space back to life. Light touch repair of the historic interior is combined successfully with new materials to create architectural poetry.”
The theatre will open fully in December 2018, and tickets for performances are available now.
