Congratulations to WGP Architects, and Charterhouse Investments with New Wolsey Theatre for their recent project that won a RIBA East Award 2022 and RIBA East Client of the Year Award 2022.

Taking the top layer of a spiral car park ramp adjacent to the New Wolsey, the new low-carbon NW2 Participation Building establishes a series of accessible spaces for community engagement, sitting on a newly created Theatre Square for outdoor public performances and other events in the round. It forms phase one of the theatre’s refurbishment project.

Details about the project can be found on the RIBA website.
