The Shed at the National Theatre

The Shed is a temporary stage grafted on to the National Theatre. It will give the NT a third auditorium while the Cottesloe is closed for a year during the NT Future redevelopment.

The inside/outside space that will act as the bar and foyer for the Shed for next 12 months is a wonderfully cosy in-between space. Howarth Tompkins have managed to interact with Sir Denys Lasdun’s outstanding building with an admirable lightness of touch.

But nothing can quite match the magnificent play of solidity/transparency of Lasdun’s masterpiece.
