Stone cladding materials to offer western outlook for Doncaster theatre
Plans to overhaul the civic and cultural quarter of Doncaster include the use of stone cladding materials across the western face of a new performance venue.
The cladding materials are one element in the design of the new multipurpose structure, with glazed openings allowing light into the interior of its foyer.
'After years of waiting, Doncaster will finally benefit from a modern, multipurpose venue that will attract popular shows to the town,' a masterplan published by Doncaster City Council reads.
The stone cladding could help the new structure to blend in alongside existing buildings, while the nearby civic accommodation due to be constructed also keeps the natural environment in mind.
According to the masterplan, the new civic office space is to adhere to green and sustainable building principles while providing a single point of access for residents to seek assistance from the council on public services.
The new venue and offices, along with modern leisure facilities and a reconstructed library, are planned to face on to Doncaster's first public square, with nearby Waterdale Road made pedestrian-friendly.
