The top-floor (Grand Tier) view over Centenary Square is emerging at Birmingham Symphony Hall. The steel frame for the extension is progressing well, and the internal spaces are taking shape, including the new stepped platform and performance space.
Focusing on the audience experience, the project seeks to extend and transform the existing foyers and provide a new face to Symphony Hall addressing Centenary Square. The glazed facade reveals three levels of activity – a ‘City Balcony’ and two new hospitality spaces at the top Grand Tier level, a double height foyer space below for the Dress and Upper Circles levels in which performance and events can be easily staged, and a busy entrance at Stalls level with a new café/bar off the new Centenary Square entrance.
