Description of The Roundhouse
The Roundhouse was built in 1846 as a steam-engine repair shed but is now a Grade II* listed building in Camden, London NW1.
From 2004-2006 the Roundhouse was closed for a £30m redevelopment. Architects John McAslan + Partners were tasked with:
• Bringing the legendary performing space back to life and equipping it with advanced technology such as flexible seating, lighting and sound. Part of this complex job involved the addition of seven layers of soundproofing to the roof.
• Building a state-of-the-art creative centre for 11-25 year olds.
• Restoring original features.
