영국 로얄 오페라 하우스의 소품을 제작하기 위한 워크샵 입니다.
이곳 워크샵은 오페라 하우스에서 사용되는 거대한 무대막 제작을 위한 페인트샵 목공 그리고
철골 제작에 관련된 워크샵을 포함 합니다. 특히 워크샵의 건축적 특징을 잘 나타내는 반구형태는
거대한 무대배경이 장애없이 제작 될 수 있도록 트러스를 이용한 무주공간으로 계획됩니다.
트러스 스트럭쳐 사이에 계획된 천창은 공간 깊숙히 주간의 빛을 유입시켜 작업환경을
보장하는 컨텐츠로 디자인되어 집니다.
이러한 워크샵의 강렬한 존재감은 프로뎍션 캠퍼스의 새로운 활력으로 정의 될 것입니다.

The scheme recently received the RIBA East Spirit of Ingenuity Award for its “dedication to light and to the craft of making”.
“The workshop has exceeded all our expectations as a work place and is the envy of other Opera Houses around the world. It has totally transformed the way we build and paint our scenery.”
