Lyttelton Lounge

Lyttelton Lounge

National Theatre

Lyttelton Lounge is a space located on level 1 of the National Theatre, open everyday to the public, for free. Visitors can explore the theatre’s past and present and access exclusive digital content via a HTML5 interface, by logging on to the WiFi.

Play Nicely designed and developed a responsive web app which invites users to browse digital content from the archive – including early recordings, prompt scripts and interviews. The Lyttelton Lounge interface launched with a digital exhibition exploring Tom Stoppard’s plays.

I produced the Lyttelton Lounge interface, I was responsible for managing the production and client at the National Theatre. It was a challenging development due to an incremental change in scope which brought with it UX challenges; establishing the best approach for navigating nested content across desktop and mobile devices.
