BDP completes Aberdeen Music Hall refurb

Aberdeen Music Hall, designed by Archibald Smith, refurbished by BDP

Category A-listed 1820s venue reopens after £9m transformation

A 190-year-old performing arts venue in Scotland has reopened to the public after a £9m refurbishment programme led by BDP.

Category A-listed Aberdeen Music Hall was closed from August 2016 until last month for upgrade work that has reconfigured existing rooms to create additional public space and new performance areas at the 1,300-capacity venue.

The project, for Aberdeen Performing Arts, also included redecoration and the introduction of architectural lighting to complement the building’s listed interiors.
