Battersea Arts Centre
 
Built as Battersea Town Hall in 1893, Battersea Arts Centre is an architectural treasure trove, its exuberant Edwardian Baroque exterior concealing mosaic floors, grand staircases, colonnaded lobbies and glass domes. Working with BAC, Haworth Tompkins has conceived a programme of refurbishing the building not through a single capital project, but by tackling each area as directors or theatre companies find a use for it. In this way the building will be both explored and refurbished on a rolling programme which intrinsically relates to the Centre's artistic programme. Initial projects include a production of Masque of the Red Death by Punchdrunk in 2008 and Don John by Kneehigh in 2009.
