Hammersmith Eventim Apollo

Foster Wilson Architects have been working with the building owners; AEG Live and CTS Eventim to restore this legendary Grade II* listed live entertainment venue, through a number of different phases of work.

The main phase of work in 2012 included a major restoration of the auditorium and front of house areas. Using detailed paint research, the colour scheme has been restored to the original rich art deco colours of green, silver and gold. A multi-coloured LED lighting has been used to give decorative lighting that can be adjusted for each incoming show.

During the nine-week closure for renovation the team revealed a number of previously hidden features in the venue, including a uniquely patterned terrazzo floor, friezes by the artist Newbury Abbott Trent, decorative art deco glass and two marble staircases. New bars with illuminated glass counters were installed and all the venue seating refurbished or replaced.

We have recently completed the refurbishment of all the toilets in the venue and are now working with the client to undertake a major refurbishment of the external fabric.
