The National Theatre appointed Haworth Tompkins as project architects. Haworth Tompkins were responsible for the development of the National Theatre Studio.

We consulted widely with neighbouring organisations on the South Bank and the local residents; with English Heritage, the Twentieth Century Society and the Theatres Trust; with members of staff and the NT's artistic community; and with our audience.

In June 2015, the National Theatre won a RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) award for cultural buildings. This is a wonderful recognition of Haworth Tompkins thoughtful design and NT Future’s transformation of the NT. You can read the judges’ comments and find out more about the award, by clicking here.
