Extension to Backstage Theatre

This extension to the well-known Backstage Theatre was funded by the Department of Arts and provides this busy theatre with a multi-functional performance/rehearsal space as well as additional administrative areas. The design solution had to work with the existing building complex, the sloping site, and the various activities accommodated on the shared grounds including a very active GAA club and a Gaelscoil. A unique facade treatment was developed with a local artist and depicts the journey of the nearby Camlin River and adjoining field patterns etched out in plaster work.
