Watt St Commercial | CKDS Architecture

The Watt Street Commercial Project transforms the former Watt Street Arc theatre into three levels of A-Grade office space connected by an open atrium stair. This addition seamlessly integrates contemporary, light-filled commercial areas while respecting Lawrence Nield’s original award-winning design. Vertical louvres encase a newly proposed glazed box hovering above the office entry to Watt Street. Originally designed as a tiered internalized theatre space, the shift to commercial use necessitated an increased emphasis on natural light and amenity, serving as a driving force behind the design concept.The alterations and additions to the existing structure stand as a pivotal element within an upscale commercial complex in Newcastle’s vibrant East End.
