Nevill Holt Opera shortlisted for the RIBA Stirling Prize

7 October 2019

Nevill Holt Opera is one of six projects in the running for the RIBA Stirling Prize, to be announced at a ceremony this week.

The RIBA Stirling Prize is the highest built-environment accolade, awarded to the best building in the UK. 

It is the fourth year in a row that one of our projects is on the RIBA Stirling Prize shortlist.

Newport Street Gallery won the RIBA Stirling Prize in 2016, and Photography Studio for Juergen Teller and Tate St Ives were shortlisted in 2017 and 2018 respectively. Another of our projects, the MAXXI gallery in Rome, won the RIBA Stirling Prize in 2010.

Nevill Holt Opera is a new theatre in the courtyard of the 17th century stable courtyard at the Grade II* listed Nevill Estate in Leicestershire. Working with Witherford Watson MannPrice & Myers and Sound Space Vision, we provided M&E and Architectural Lighting services for the project.
