The Folkstone''s Quarterhouse Performing Arts and Business Centre is 1550 sqm constructed buidling that hosts a 220 seat, 500 standing multi-purpose auditorium for music, dance, theatre, film performances and conferences. The Alison Brooks designed building also acts as a ground breaking space for startups in creative industries, as well as first floor café/bar, ground floor foyer and exhibition space.
Located at the curved Georgian streetscape of Tontine Street, the architecture completes an informal urban ‘shopfront’ building previously. The fluted mesh cladding was inspired by both the maritime iconography of Folkestone’s historic architecture and the translucent scallop shells that arrive in Folkestone’s harbour every day.
Construction began in summer 2007 with funding for the project coming from a £3.5M Kent County Council grant with a further £500,000 from the South East England Development Agency (SEEDA). The project team includes Akera Engineers, Charcoalblue Theatre Consultants, Atelier Ten, GPM Partnership and local contractor DJ Ellis.
