“The Shed stands in Theatre Square between the theatre and the river, and houses a 225-seat auditorium made of raw steel and plywood. A temporary foyer has been carved out from the space beneath the NT’s external terraces. The rough sawn timber cladding is a reference to the National Theatre’s board-marked concrete, while its corner towers refer to its bold geometries. It is built from 100% recyclable materials, is fitted out with re-used seating and is naturally ventilated: the four towers draw air through the building.”
