Royal Opera House Costume Centre opens

15 October 2015

The Royal Opera House Bob and Tamar Manoukian Costume Centre is the second NHA-designed building at High House Production Park in Thurrock. It follows on from the success of the park infrastructure and the adjacent ROH Production Workshop. Both buildings were built to the highest environmental standards, achieving a BREEAM Excellent award.

The Costume Centre provides new workshops for making and repairing costumes and for their dedicated storage. It is an innovative hybrid steel and timber construction, highly insulated, with a green roof, low energy use and renewable energy provision.

"The workroom is such a fantastic space for making costumes, being so large, warm and bright… the light really is perfect for detailed work”
Fay Fullerton, Head of Costume
