Komedia

Komedia

Komedia has been showcasing comedy, cabaret and theatre since 1994. For its first permanent home outside Brighton, it chose a listed picture house in Bath. The renovation required sensitive restructuring and extensive refurbishing. Winner of the 2009 Design Quality Award from Bath & North East Somerset Council, Building Control and the 2010 Heritage Award from Constructing Excellence South West.

SRA redesigned the space to allow a 550-seat auditorium – suitable for local or box office shows and comedians – while retaining much of the historic character. We also made space for a café-bar at the entrance, re-energising the venue at street level.

Bringing vibrant new uses to this urban treasure has enhanced community life, both culturally and economically. In recognition of this, the project was awarded the 2009 Design Quality Award from Bath & North East Somerset Council and the 2010 Heritage Award from Constructing Excellence South West.
