Polka Theatre

Client: The Polka Theatre Ltd

Year: 2009

Following a two-stage design competition, Foster Wilson Architects was chosen to redevelop the Polka Children’s Theatre in Wimbledon. The design opens up and expands the existing front of house with foyers, a cafĂ© and shop, and creates a new studio theatre for 1 -5 years olds and an education studio. The main auditorium was remodelled and refurbished, and internal and external foyer spaces re-designed to be more attractive to young audiences. Design work has been completed up to RIBA Stage C+.
