The New Theatre

Shoreditch, London   •   Housing, Theatre

Built on the remains of London’s first ever playhouse, the New Theatre is a mixed-use development providing housing and a brand new theatre.

The design is a modern take on the original Tudor theatre where William Shakespeare first worked as an actor and playwright. Materials are used to reference and reflect the old playhouse while the design makes the most of the site and acts a catalyst for regeneration.

When the project completes the site will be listed as a scheduled monument.
