Extension for the Theatre Royal, Margate

The objective of the project was to create a flexible new form for the existing listed building. A modular steel frame structure that could accommodate new circulation was experimented with to provide an open, naturally lit volume, contrasting the enclosed theatre. The intricacy of the cubic volume meant a holistic design was difficult to achieve by typical design approaches, to solve this I produced a 1:1 model in Minecraft.
