Through planting and sculptural elements, Gillespies and Expedition Engineering's landscape recreate the home where Shakespeare spent his last 19 years as a family man and gentleman - a house that was, sadly demolished, two centuries ago. In the adjacent Grade 1 listed building, Real Studios uses specially commissioned A/V installations, stunning theatrical displays and sculptural set-pieces to evoke Shakespeare's family and professional life.
A radically new presentation of Shakespeare's life and times has opened its doors in Stratford-on-Avon. New Place is both a narrative landscape, tracing the contours of his original family home, and a two-storey, immersive and entertaining exhibition in the adjacent historic house, designed by Real Studios.
