Tuned In @ Myplace – Redcar
Redcar, North Yorkshire
Bowman Riley developed the designs on Tuned In @ Myplace, a new build state-of-the-art media and arts facility for the young people of Redcar and Cleveland.
The building forms part of the wider regeneration of Redcar town centre and the sea front area and occupies a prime location on the promenade overlooking the sea. The centre is aimed predominantly at 13-19 year olds and was designed in consultation with the young users.
The facilities include a performing arts theatre, dance studio, juice bar, shop, consulting rooms, arts and crafts studios, IT suite, library, hair and beauty studio, gallery space, chill out areas, recording and radio studios, catering facilities and ancillary staff areas. Externally there is an amphitheatre performance space.
Tuned In@ Myplace was delivered to the client as a turnkey building including information technology and audio visual installations, furnishings, fittings and equipment.
The project was part of the Myplace, Big Lottery Fund to deliver world class youth facilities driven by the active participation of young people and their views and needs.
