Her Majesty’s Theatre

Cox Architecture

Constructed in 1913, Her Majesty’s Theatre is Adelaide’s oldest continually operating performance venue, staging world class performances and performers.

COX Architecture and project partners were engaged to redevelop Her Majesty’s Theatre to deliver a contemporary performance venue that honours the integrity and character of the iconic original building.

Historic fabric and new built form are seamlessly integrated through careful design and detailing, and a considered and crafted interior captures the delight and celebration of a night out at the theatre.

COX Architecture, The Adelaide Festival Theatre Trust, Department of Premier and Cabinet and Hansen Yuncken have been instrumental in bringing HMT back to life. ‘Her Maj’ achieves best practice design principles paired with exceptional built outcomes. The public and media acclaim to date, and successful performances, point to a significant improvement in the performing arts and cultural life for South Australia and installs the next chapter in the HMT legacy.
