Glass partitions mix the old with the new at Shakespeare North Playhouse

At Cube7 Interiors, we were thrilled to be involved in the stunning Shakespeare North Playhouse, the new £30m theatre in Prescot, Knowsley.

The incredible new venue is home to the only 17th-century style timber theatre outside London, and our glass partitions and doors were the perfect addition to this old-meets-new project by architect Dr Nicholas Helm.

The Project

Central to the Shakespeare North Playhouse is the impressive oak-framed, Elizabethan-inspired cockpit theatre lit by candelabra. While the performance area is inspired by the old, the building itself is very contemporary, and our glass partitions and Glazed doors were used throughout.

The Products

The building designers wanted to create a sense of openness and space and opted for our Cube Blue single-glazed and double-glazed frameless glass partitioning.

Our top-quality glass partitioning was used in the exhibition gallery, the 60-seater studio theatre, the learning centre, the exhibition and events spaces, and the café and bar areas.

Available in either straight lines, facets, or sleek curves, Cube Blue’s maximum glass and minimal framework glazed partitions gave a frameless glass wall effect and were perfect for various areas in the new theatre. The double-glazed partitioning provides excellent acoustics, making it ideal for performance spaces and meeting rooms.

To complement the glass partitions, we also installed our Nuclear Glass Doors

The Nuclear Glass doors are a 10-12mm clear toughened glass door leaf complete with a wide variety of door ironmongery.

It’s available as a frameless glass door or with a perimeter framework. The Nuclear glass door integrates with all our partitioning systems to give a flush glass wall look.

Our frameless glass doors use patch fittings to hang off the adjoining glass side screen or a solid structure, while the framed glass doors offer higher acoustics, and the frameless glass leaf sits within our 38mm aluminium door frame.

The Shakespeare North Playhouse opened its doors to the public for the first time on 15 July 2022.
