Garter Lane Arts Centre is home to a vibrant and extensive program that includes dance, theatre, film, live music and fine arts. Productions range from contemporary Irish to international, professional and amateur productions.
The centre is located in a 1790 Quaker meeting house in downtown Waterford, on the southeast coast of Ireland.
Diamond Schmitt Architects led the design of the much-needed renovations and additions to the theatre, providing new washrooms, kitchen, dressing rooms, box office, administrative offices and backstage facilities. The 215-seat auditorium and stage have been reconfigured to improve sightlines and crossover space behind the stage. The new work was combined with restoration of this historically significant site.
