Founded in 1964 in the appropriately named Hope Hall (once a chapel, then a cinema), the Everyman built a reputation for ground-breaking work.

Following a ten year gestation this project spent 20 weeks carefully “deconstructing” the old theatre, enabling the reuse of 90% of the materials on site.

Accessible and environmentally sustainable, the 420+ seat flexible theatre combines the trademark wrap-around auditorium with many new facilities including a space for young people and community groups, a new “Bistro” restaurant, café and bars, writers’ workshop, rehearsal space, and production workshops.

This BREEAM excellent project utilises the stack effect of four distinct brick chimneys to create one of the country’s few naturally ventilated auditoriums.

The beautiful Hope Street façade, representing 105 people of Liverpool through an artist commission of shutter screens, expresses the fact that this is truly an Everyman for everyone.

The project has won a number of awards including the coveted RIBA Stirling Prize.
