Open Door: Nevill Holt Opera

Open Door, a partnership between the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and British Council, is designed to promote and celebrate outstanding conservation work by emerging architects in mainland China and in the UK.

Nevill Holt Opera – Leicestershire, England
Witherford Watson Mann Architects
Category 2: Heritage buildings built before 1901

Nevill Holt Opera Building is, at first interaction, a non-building, wholly hidden within the stable yard of the hall’s stable block. Country houses continually evolve, being added to over time; the opera building is an exceptional 21st century addition to Nevill Holt Hall.

The Open Door project is aimed at architects who have been qualified for 10 years or less. It highlights the best of recent architectural heritage projects and the environmental and cultural benefits of building conservation. It also aims to foster knowledge sharing between expert practitioners in both countries, facilitating future UK-China dialogue on architecture and design.
