Country: United Kingdom Notes The theatre stands on the edge of Belfast's centre. The site is sloping and irregular, with small redbrick houses on one side, and a lush, green sweep of the river Lagan on the other. The new building includes an enlarged auditorium of 390 seats, an experimental studio space and a large rehearsal room. What the architects have created is a three-dimensional wander between these three main spaces, across several different levels, compressed into an angular brick shape that echoes both the little houses and the craggy geology that surrounds the city. John Tuomey romantically describes this arrangement as "rocks in a river", while saying that "Belfast is a pointy kind of place, not rounded", to which his angular design also responds.
