Working with the owners of this wonderful theatre company, we helped with their Front of House scheme to uplift the finishes and furnishings.

Funded by an arts grant, and inspired by a keenness to create a sustainable scheme we looked to create furniture from upcycled elements such as wooden crates and to re-use elements where possible.  The result was a space which staff and members alike enjoy for its flexibility and varied areas within the main space.

Director Stewart McGill had the following kind words to say about our design services:

"What a rewarding and very fulfilling experience working with Metrical Design has been.  Our theatre, the Dream Factory, in Warwick, after many years since opening needed a reimagination project to more reflect our times.  As a theatre complex for the development and performance for and with young people it is essential to strike a warm, welcoming and contemporary feel for those attending as either participants and/or audiences.  With a little ace funding Playbox Theatre was able to proceed with the project and metrical were our consultants for the remodel of front of house. 

Rachel was thoughtful, understood the brief-which was quite complex in its needs and related to some extensive inspirational sets of source material. Conversations were delightful as Rachel listened to often ramblings and vague notions.  She triumphed with a vision that perfectly reflected our thinking and now visitors to the Dream Factory love our new setting, design, furniture, installation. We cannot recommend Rachel and Metrical Design too much and know just how thorough and caring she is for her projects. Superb."
