Roundhouse for the London and Birmingham Railway in Camden, London

RIBA135100
Dockray, Robert Benson (1811-1871)
NOTES: The Roundhouse, devised by Robert Stephenson and designed by R. B. Dockray, was built in 1847 to turn steam engines around for the London and Birmingham Railway. As steam engines became too large for the building it then became a warehouse for Gilbey's gin from c. 1860 until 1960 when it was converted into a performing arts venue. It was converted into a theatre by Bickerdike Allen Rich & Partners in 1967, acquired by Camden Council and transformed into an Arts Centre by John McAslan in 1997.
