Having worked on several redevelopment projects in Norwich, Type3 studio identified the lack of large scale music and entertainment venues in Norfolk. We instigated the project, formed a project team and investigated a number of potential sites. We settled on an edge of city site, and master-planed a scheme including a 6,000 seat arena, hotel and other associated leisure facilities, set around a large civic plaza. The plaza will also provide opportunities for exhibitions, markets and other regional events.
We have worked with the NEC Group to develop an arena scheme, that is flexible in it’s accommodation, in order to attract national and international artists, exhibitions and live events. We also worked with Hotel and Cinema operators to create a cohesive entertainment district, forming a landmark development along one of the main gateway route, into Norwich City Centre.
