Southbank Centre selects Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios as lead architect to refurbish and renew Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Room and Hayward Gallery complex.
The refurbishment and renewal project will bring the performance spaces and galleries in the complex up to the standard of the recently transformed Royal Festival Hall and will address current urgent problems including poor access to and the upgrading of the stages and galleries; substandard back stage areas; and worn out services.
Alan Bishop, Chief Executive of Southbank Centre, said: “We are delighted to name Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios as lead architect. Their strong understanding of our festival site and their participatory design approach make them ideal partners in the renewal of the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Room and Hayward Gallery complex. This is the important next step in the transformation of Southbank Centre, which began with the refurbishment of the Royal Festival Hall.”
