Lyric Theatre, West Kowloon Cultural District


AD+RG and UNStudio (Joint Venture)


Hong Kong

Completion date


The West Kowloon Cultural District will establish a new vibrant cultural quarter located on a dramatic harbour-front site in the heart of Hong Kong.

A key building in the new cultural district will be the Lyric Theatre; a 1,450 seat theatre designed to define the new standard for dance performances. It will also accommodate a wide range of other activities including music and spoken words.  


Our Brief

In addition to the Lyric Theatre, a smaller 600 seat Medium Theatre also requires careful acoustic design to ensure it excels with its primary function as a drama and spoken word theatre.

Finally, the Studio Theatre and large rehearsal rooms will provide the flexibility and accommodation for the tenants of the Resident Company Centre.
