BEAT THE CHILL

This MSA live team will be working with our external collaborators NIAMOS LTD to develop an energy-efficient retrofit to the historic theatre and community center at the heart of Hulme. NIAMOS is located at the old Hulme playhouse theatre, built by Architect Joseph John Alley in 1902 and funded by W H Broadhead. They intend to redevelop this historically and culturally significant building into a community arts wellbeing space where artists and the community can have access to this beautiful building, preserve its heritage and act as a support system for meaningful engagement in the community. We will be exploring a sustainable environmental framework for this 120-year-old Grade II listed theatre building with an onsite scalable example by interior retrofit & space arrangement and also some possible funding solutions.
