Redeveloping a world-class performance space.
This was the first complete refit for the Royal Albert Hall since 1871. To help put on a wider range of shows, we upgraded the backstage facilities and rebuilt the area south of the hall to create an underground service entrance and yard.
We fitted an effective new ventilation system, re-cast the acoustics and re-set the seating tiers.
The visitor experience was transformed by glazing in the east and west porches and the creation of a new south porch, bar and foyer areas, with a major pedestrian space to replace the roadway around the hall.
