Residential , Education & Community

As part of RADA’s celebration of Lord Attenborough’s life and legacy, known as the Attenborough Campaign, Firstplan secured planning and listed building consent for a scheme of alterations, extensions, demolition and refurbishment to create the 300 seat Richard Attenborough Theatre, 60 bed purpose-built student accommodation, a new publically accessible refectory, bar and kitchen, library, exhibition space, ancillary offices, and various other alterations to modernise and improve facilities at the RADA campus at No.16 and 18 Chenies Street.

No.16 is a Grade II listed property and the site is situated within a conservation area. Working closely with the architect in securing planning and listed building consent, Firstplan sought to address detailed heritage and planning considerations to modernise the facilities, whilst retaining the sites historic significance and character.
