Client: Brewery Arts Centre
Area: 40,000 sqft
A feasibility study on the development opportunities for the Brewery Arts Center, a cultural hub situated for Kendall.
The challenge is to expand the capacity and entertainment offer of the centre, while working in harmony with the historical former brewery building and to a restricted budget.
Our proposal introduces a series of 5 cinema screens raised on pedestals over the car park to the south, improves the circulation in the existing buildings, and transforms the under-used garden area into a central courtyard, building on the local vernacular of narrow yards and lanes that characterize Kendal. This central space will then be the ‘beating heart’ of the cultural center, and used for events, markets and festivals throughout the year.
