a monthly round-up of the world's best interiors and design stories
Friday 26 Oct 2012
The first phase of work at the Bush theatre is complete. Haworth Tompkins collaborated with the theatre's in house team on a very low budget, fast track project to convert the former public library building into a 140 seat auditorium, reading room, cafe bar, offices, workshop, dressing rooms and rehearsal room.
Much of the interior is recycled or home made from materials found on site, and regular collaborator Antoni Malinowski painted Walls and ceilings within the front of house spaces. The next phase will deal with improved accessibility and a new public space around the entrance to Shepherds Bush Market.
