We were absolutely thrilled to win the Retrofit category at this year’s Scottish Design Awards for our project at The Hyde Park Picture House. It was a fantastic evening joined by our friends at BuroHappold, celebrating the best of Scottish design in 2024.

The Hyde Park Picture House is a Grade II listed independent cinema in Leeds, known for being the very last gas-lit cinema in the UK. The redevelopment project consisted of three key aspects; comprehensive conservation works to the original cinema building, construction of a new 3-storey extension to offer better access / facilities for the building, and finally a new 50-seat second screen excavated from the basement to increase revenue.

Alongside these physical alterations to the building, the project aimed to celebrate the cinema’s rich history, bringing its architectural features to the spotlight – including the gas lighting.
