    • Diorama Commences Developed Design

      24 August 2020

      Following recent granting of planning consent for the redevelopment of the historic Diorama Theatre next to Regent’s Park, developed design is underway with works targeted to commence early next year.

      This exciting project has been in the development since 2019 and will see the transformation of the historic theatre into a sustainable, adaptable and modern workspace.

      The historic rotunda has been reinvented as the centre of circulation and movement through the building looking to bring a strong identifiable theme that ties the building back to its origins. This space also presented a unique and exciting expression of the most important and human part of the original building – the auditorium. The use of a simple circular geometric plan which rises in section and brings into play the strong sculptural forms of the staircase and the suspended meeting room is both rational and exciting. The composition together fosters awareness with the original theatre its historical significance. The circular rooflight which illuminates the entire experience brings back daylight to the building once again.
