Royal Shakespeare Theatre wins RIBA Award 2011

The recently completed Royal Shakespeare Theatre project in Stratford upon Avon has won a prestigious RIBA Award 2011.

The judges thought the architects’ overall planning is thoughtful and cohesive. This is best shown in the formation of the new lobby, the arrangements for delivery of sets to the stage, the opening up of the path to the riverside and finally the new tower that works both as marker and viewing platform scheme in which the external spaces provide the continuity that builds together a number of disparate buildings. The choice of materials is sound and the attention to detail is impressive.

Designed by Bennetts Associates the scheme uses a bespoke blend of Saxon Red Multi, Wessex Mixture and Smooth Forest Royal bricks.
