This is actually Moorfields station before its re-furb:

Riba Stirling Prize 2014: Liverpool Everyman Theatre wins

Liverpool's newly rebuilt Everyman Theatre has won the Riba Stirling Prize for best new building of the year.

The venue beat five other buildings to win the honour - the Royal Institute of British Architects' highest accolade.

Riba president Stephen Hodder called the Everyman an "exceptional new building".

"It is a ground-breaking example of how to build a daring bold and highly sustainable large public building in a historic city centre," he said.

The Everyman Theatre - famed for launching the careers of actors including Bill Nighy, Julie Walters and Pete Postlethwaite - first opened in 1964 in the shell of a 19th Century chapel on one of Liverpool's main streets.

However over the years it fell into a state of disrepair and architects Haworth Tompkins were tasked with designing a new theatre as part of a nine-year £27m rebuilding project, retaining its theme of being a "theatre for the people".

The building's facade features 105 punched aluminium panels portraying life-size images of Liverpool residents. Thousands queued to have their pictures taken, with the successful applicants having digital versions of their pictures etched onto the metal sun shades.
Everyman Theatre The rebuilding process was boosted by £17m of National Lottery funding

"The success of this exceptional new building lies in the architect's close involvement with the local community throughout the project," Mr Hodder said.

"Haworth Tompkins have struck the perfect balance between continuity and change to win the hearts and minds of the people of Liverpool with the vibrant new Everyman."

The theatre said it was "thrilled" to win the award.

"The Everyman was built with humanity at its heart," artistic director Gemma Bodinetz said.

"Since we reopened, the warmth of feeling from the public to their much-loved Everyman - given a daring and brilliant rebirth - has been almost overwhelming.

"Haworth Tompkins have delivered us a building that is sustainable, technically first rate and with unparalleled levels of accessibility for a theatre."

This, seemingly, modest little building was surely the deserved winner of this year's Stirling Architecture prize. A re-build of a much loved institution; at the heart of the cultural life of the city. A building which is inclusive to all, and welcoming; not alienating like some of the other nominees this year. And yet, a building of quality; fine detailing and considerate of those that will use it. Incorporating re-cycled bricks from the old theatre, and commemorating the people who have loved and been associated with it over the years.

Architecture does not always have to be about the biggest and loudest - in fact architecture should really be about people and communities; enhancing the lives of those who live there.


Well done the architects, and well done Liverpool....!

Congrats to Liverpool! Great award for this great city! I still love coming back to Liverpool and I'm very excited for all the new developments that are happening in the city, even though it's still being forgotten by central government!

Royal Court Theatre | Refurbishment | Phase One Complete



Quote:
The first phase of the refurbishment of the Royal Court Theatre in Liverpool has been completed. Stalls have been remodelled, seats have been replaced, a new bar has been installed on the ground floor, as well as new toilet facilities. Future phases will include a new extended foyer, access to the upper floors and a rooftop bar and restaurant.

Quote:
Phase Two of Royal Court Liverpool is set to begin now that Liverpool City Council has endorsed the plans to extend the Grade II listed building with a capital contribution. Referred to as ‘The Welcome Project’, this latest phase – due for completion in June 2015 – includes a new foyer extension to the theatre, a brand new box office, improved access by way of a lift to all floors of the building and a first floor terrace.
