Refurbishment of an existing theatre including revamped foyers and a statement staircase

The brief for the Theatre Royal was to provide new front-of-house facilities for the audience in a new extension directly linked back to the historic theatre.

Scottish Opera desired welcoming and open foyers to help build audiences for both opera and the other performances staged at the theatre.

Driven by the practical need to improve access to the upper balcony levels, the extension houses new entrances, box office, café, bars, toilets, lifts and cloakrooms.

The foyers are open throughout the day and the roof terrace at balcony level offers views across the city to the hills beyond.
