The StoryHouse – Chester
Chester Storyhouse was renovated using a bespoke brick specially developed by RGB, Furness Brick, in consultation with Bennetts Associates and PLF Ltd.
The architecture of a 1930s Art Deco cinema has been the springboard for a vibrant and dynamic new public building, in the city of Chester. With its major extension housing a new theatre the complex is an inspirational entertainment centre. Although a substantial addition, it does not compromise the significant street presence of the former building. In architectural style it does not emulate the Art Deco style of the older building. However, the brick for the new structure has been chosen to match the colour and texture of the original ones.
