HPW completed a high quality re-design and fit-out of the Foyer, Brasserie, Bar & Grill, all back of house areas and the courtyard at the well renowned Minerva Theatre, a studio theatre run as part of the adjacent Chichester Festival Theatre.

Appointed by and working with Brymor Construction and Mace Project Management, HPW worked closely with the Minerva team to ensure the Design & Build was delivered on time and budget, on a fast track 4 month programme.


Completed in time and on budget, a high quality refurbishment of the Minerva Theatre, Chichester

The interior design included the foyer entrance staircase, new bars and waitress stations to The Brasserie and Minerva Bar & Grill, joinery and finishes throughout and detailing of coffered ceilings accommodating colour changing lighting by Arlico Lighting.

In addition to this, feature walls and frameless glass partitions have been designed and incorporated into the scheme as well as the selection of the furniture, seating, fabrics and wall and floor finishes throughout.

''We had an incredibly tight timescale between seasons to both design and build the Minerva Theatre refurbishment. HPW Architecture embraced this very quickly and they were able to deliver a concept that met both our design & operational aspirations. Their ability to respond so promptly & effectively was a significant factor in protecting a very tight construction period. Having now been completed on time & on budget, we are indeed proud of the light, cohesion and quality so evident in the Minerva refurbishment. We are very grateful to HPW for the huge part they played in the success of the Minerva refurbishment  project."
