Levitt Bernstein to develop £30m arts centre masterplan
Council announce design team for Cambridge Junction redevelopment
Cambridge Junction and Cambridge City Council have announced the appointment of Levitt Bernstein for the £30m regeneration of the city arts centre, a social enterprise that provides a programme of arts presentation and development, popular culture and creative learning. The council recently approved funds of £250,000 to engage a team to produce a master plan and redevelopment designs to RIBA Stage 1.
Levitt Bernstein will lead the team that will draw up plans to upgrade and expand the complex’s existing performance spaces, while also creating a master plan to explore options for new complementary uses within the leisure park site. The firm has a track record of delivering performance and space of all kinds for over 40 years, with projects including the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester, LSO St Luke’s in London, The Congress Theatre in Eastbourne and recently Colston Hall in Bristol.
The Junction redevelopment, planned to complete in 2024, aims to attract new audiences while also securing its long-term organisational resilience. The council have stated their ambition to develop a landmark building that will increase accessibility and usability, as well as being architecturally important. Both Cambridge Junction and Cambridge City Council have declared a Climate Emergency, with environmental sustainability forming a key part of the project.
