West Kowloon Cultural District - Lyric Theatre


AD+RG and UNStudio (Joint Venture)


Hong Kong



The West Kowloon Cultural District will establish a new vibrant cultural quarter located on a dramatic harbour-front site in the heart of Hong Kong.

A key building in the new cultural district will be the Lyric Theatre; a 1,450 seat theatre designed to define the new standard for dance performances. It will also accommodate a wide range of other activities including music and spoken words.

Our Brief

Marshall Day Acoustics is responsible for the full acoustic design of all spaces, including the room acoustics for the theatre and full noise and vibration control for the development, which is partially located above the MTR and Airport Express Rail Lines.

In addition to the Lyric Theatre, a smaller 600 seat Medium Theatre also requires careful acoustic design to ensure it excels with its primary function as a drama and spoken word theatre.

Finally, the Studio Theatre and large rehearsal rooms will provide the flexibility and accommodation for the tenants of the Resident Company Centre (also in the project).
