The Roundhouse, an old Victorian trainshed in Camden, North London was rescued and transformed by Norman, who raised £27 million from public and private sources, including almost £7 million from his own personal funds. He was prompted to act after reading that the Roundhouse, then a crumbling Victorian former railway repair shed was about to be turned into a museum.
A new wing has been added to the original building with a bar and café. It also houses a separate 150-seated space called "Studio 42".
In 2007 Sir Torquil won the prestigious Beacon Fellowship Prize for his work with young people through the Roundhouse Trust.
