Haworth Tompkins are working on the redevelopment of the Bristol Old Vic theatre, rebuilding the front of house areas and studio. The new foyer will gather the whole audience in a single, lofty courtyard space, revealing for the first time in its 250-year history the extraordinary 1760's front wall of the Georgian Theatre, which will be visible from the street. The project also includes a new studio theatre and the refurbishment of the magnificent 18th Century Coopers' Hall, which will be returned to its original purpose as a grand communal room for the city.
