A reinvigorated People's Palace
London RIBA Regional Award 2019
Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios for Alexandra Park & Palace Charitable Trust
Contract value: £17m
Cost per m²: £2,872
Regeneration of the east wing of Alexandra Palace involved much-needed conservation work on the building envelope. It also opened up a vast newly glazed top-lit space originally conceived as an exhibition hall to create a welcoming, bright, multifunctional space with a vibrant 1,000m² floor painting. And it revealed the delightful Victorian theatre, a treasure trove of crumbling plaster, pragmatically retained and stabilised in situ. The architect’s response to the brief has led to a great sense of shared endeavour which coherently and successfully delivers a reinvigorated People’s Palace.
