The NT Future project was been awarded a Civic Trust Award earlier this month. The awards are given to projects that are deemed to make an outstanding contribution to the quality and appearance of the environment.

The aim of the NT Futures Project is to open up the National Theatre site making it accessible to the new generation coming into London, whilst enabling the NT to develop their role at the forefront of world theatre. The development carried out since 2012 on the Grade II* listed building includes remodelling the entrance, refurbishing the foyers, creating new riverside cafés, transforming the Cottesloe (now the Dorfman) Theatre with improved foyer and education facilities, enhanced backstage workshops, and provide a new production building, the Max Rayne Centre.

Buro Four worked with Haworth Tompkins and Charcoalblue to transform the theatres public appeal and environmental sustainability, all whilst protecting and reinforcing the listed buildings architectural significance.

We are delighted to hear it has won yet another award.
