Page\Park to make Birmingham’s Symphony Hall sing with new extension
November 28 2018
Page\Park Architects, acting in concert with Performances Birmingham, have filed a planning application to refurbish and extend the city’s Symphony Hall.
The charitable trust tasked the practice with creating a new foyer extension and main entrance to Centenary Square late last year as the lead partner in a design team which also includes Arup Structures and Max Fordham.
This would be the first significant refurbishment of the venue since it opened in 1991 and is considered a necessary investment to keep pace with the changing nature of the surrounding public realm, as well as opening up alternative revenue streams.
In a statement the practice said: “The transformed foyers will provide much improved bar, catering and hospitality spaces and provide space for the delivery of their participation and learning programme.”
Dubbed ‘Making an Entrance’ the projects primary goal is to encourage more people to embrace its events.
