Yarm School Performing Arts Centre wins RIBA Award
Associated Architects from Birmingham, England were given a brief to design a multi-functional theatre for use by students and the community. This resulted in a well-planned auditorium where RHEINZINK was specified for the roof, external façades as well as for internal use. The auditorium was constructed in 2012 and won the prestigious RIBA Award for the North East of England in 2013. This award is regarded as the Oscar in British architecture.
The architecture is fascinating. The east façade of fractured walls allowed light into the auditorium. These walls combined the use glazing as well as RHEINZINK prePatina blue-grey, diamond tiles. Additionally, 400 m2 of RHEINZINK blue-grey double standing seam technology was used on the roof. Parts of the interior were clad in diamond tiles, mirroring the external use of the RHEINZINK tiles.
The auditorium provides seating for 800 students.
