Lyric Theatre Belfast

Building Name: THE LYRIC THEATRE
Building Type: CULTURE AND ENTERTAINMENT - THEATRE
Architect: ODONNELL AND TUOMEY
Architect Website: http://www.odonnell-tuomey.ie
Town: BELFAST
Year of Completion: 2011
The Lyric Theatre stands on a sloping site at triangular junction between the grid pattern of Belfast's brick streetscape and the serpentine parkland of the River Lagan. The architectural design was developed in response to the urban and landscape conditions of the site. The building site was tightly restricted and irregular in shape. The budget was strictly limited. All the building materials are selected to endure and crafted to weather with age.

The new building replaces a substandard structure built in the 1960s. The building is the result of an open architectural competition held in May 2003, and eight years immersion in the complex process of briefing, design, fund-raising, demolition and construction.

Area: 5,500 sqm
Completion Date: May 2011
