The Street, Royal ArmouriesDesigned by AOC Architecture, 'The Street' is the attractive and friendly new front entrance to the Royal Armouries exhibitions in Leeds.
The main entrance area of the Royal Armouries building is referred to as ‘The Street’. The Street provides access to all of the Royal Armouries Museum exhibitions and various other facilities such as shop, cafés and bistro. Unfortunately The Street area lacked a visitor friendly entrance.
The competition sought ideas for the redesign and redevelopment of a new Entrance and ‘Street area’. The new design had to be clear, strong and informative to the visitor. AOC Architecture was announced as the winners of the project and they started work straight away, with completion in August 2008.
