Success at the GIA Awards 2023
We had a successful night at the GIA Awards 2023 on the 16th of November, where our Hyde Park Picture House project won the won the Leisure/Arts Award and Conservation Award.
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.
Congratulations to all of the evening’s winners, and thank you to the Glasgow Institute of Architects for their recognition, and for putting on a very enjoyable evening.
