Venue opens on September 7

Foster Wilson Architects has completed the refurbishment of London’s Hammersmith Apollo.

Designed by Robert Cromie in 1932, the famous entertainment venue was designed in an Art Deco style and originally seated over 3,500 people.

The restoration of the grade II* listed building included the revival of two marble staircases, previously concealed beneath the stage, and the restoration of ornate plasterwork and the foyer floor mosaic panels.

New bars and seats have been installed in the stalls, while the seats in the circle have been raised and reupholstered to improve legroom.

The space for wheelchair users has been doubled in the refurbishment.

The Hammersmith Apollo will reopen to the public on September 7.
