Designed me a theatre (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

meant

Here is my best explanation:

'designed' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'me a theatre' is the subsidiary indication.

'theatre' becomes 'nt' (National Theatre).

'me'+'a'+'nt'='meant'

(Other definitions for meant that I've seen before include "Intended, had in mind", "Deliberate", "Intentional", "Had as intention or purpose", "Implied", "Signified", "Had as purpose or design" and "Denoted".)
