Alumasc Façade Systems External Wall Insulation and Render Systems were used on the Liverpool Everyman Theatre winner of the 2014 Royal Institute of British Architects Awards (RIBA) Sterling Prize, the world’s most prestigious architecture prize, following its redevelopment which took place over the last two years. The award was presented to the architects behind the development, Haworth Tompkins, at a ceremony held at the Royal Institute of British Architects in London.
The new Everyman theatre has been designed to be highly environmentally stable with recycled materials featuring throughout, including 25,000 bricks from the old Everyman. It combines the trademark wrap-around auditorium and basement bistro with a number of other new facilities. The front of the building also features the old neon sign together with new revolving aluminium facades which form a Portrait Wall comprised of 105 diverse people of Liverpool.
The RIBA judges said the new Everyman is “an extraordinary contribution to both theatre and the city, achieved through clever team working – client, architect, consultants and contractor – where the new truly celebrates the past.”
