Donmar Dryden Street

The Donmar Warehouse, a leading producing theatre company, have converted a small 19th century warehouse building for rehearsal, education and support facilities. Despite the constraints imposed by a limited budget and the tightly enclosed site within the Covent Garden Conservation Area, it now houses a creative professional working environment. Stripped back and partially demolished walls and ceilings have been left raw as a suitably theatrical backdrop to the Donmar’s working life, with a new polychromatic staircase, hand painted by artist Antoni Malinowski, as the warm heart of the building.
