Edinburgh theatre seeks architect for £25m revamp

The King's Theatre in Edinburgh

Practice sought to lead ‘transformational’ work on grade A venue

The operators of Edinburgh’s grade A-listed King’s Theatre are seeking architects to deliver a £25m refurbishment of the 112-year-old city centre venue.

Owned by Edinburgh council and operated by Capital Theatres Trust, the King’s was designed by James Davidson and JD Swanston and has had two major upgrades during its lifetime, the most recent of which was in the 1980s. It also underwent a £2.5m programme to address weatherproofing and safety issues in 2012.
