This award-winning project involved the conversion of two Grade 2 listed buildings to form the Milton Centre, a new School of Theatrical Studies at the University of Huddersfield.
Having generated feasibility and concept designs, the practice was subsequently novated to the successful Design Manage and Construct contractor for the construction of the project. The project involved extensive re-establishment of all leaded glazed windows throughout the listed building structures.
Internally mezzanine floors were inserted together with a state of the art mobile lighting rig. The lighting rig is fully positionable and allows optimum conditions to be set whatever the performance. The new facility includes 2 primary performance areas together with a separate rehearsal space. Further accommodation comprises control rooms for sound, recording and lighting.
We have aided clients to rescue, protect and restore important historic buildings, including Grade 1 and 2 listed building stock.
Our professional teams work diligently to develop designs that enhance and complement existing buildings, giving new life to historic and at risk buildings.
