AOC to design courtyard extension to 1950s theatre studio

AOC Architecture with Urban Space Management has been appointed to design a three-storey extension to the National Theatre’s Studio in The Cut building in London

Currently at the pre-application stage, the proposed structure would house workshops, offices and meeting spaces for Handspring Puppet Company – the group behind the West End sensation War Horse.

Described as a ‘compact structure’, the building will have a three-storey high street elevation with a single-storey rear and will be built from modular components.

AOC Architecture director Geoff Shearcroft said the project was ‘accumulating [speed] very quickly.’

In 2008 Haworth Tompkins completed a £4.5 million revamp of the Grade-II listed Studio in The Cut building (pictured) which was originally designed by Lyons Israel Ellis in 1958. The scheme was shortlisted for the 2008 Prime Minister’s Better Public Building Award.

A public consultation on the designs took place last week.
