Lyric Theatre by O’Donnell + Tuomey

Designed by O’Donnell + Tuomey, Lyric Theatre is a new 400 seat theatre and 150 seat studio space, in Belfast, Northern Ireland. The project is the winner of an international design competition, and this new building is thought of as a production house for drama, with company activities brought out from hiding behind the stage. Built in ‘Belfast’ brick, the new building holds one corner of the continuous system of brick streets, the last building on the grid marking the corner of Ridgeway Street and addressing the River Lagan.

Lyric Theatre has been shortlisted for the 2012 RIBA Stirling Prize.
