The Royal Opera House
From being a sought after venue for live performances when the Royal Opera House was opened in 1916, the theatre transformed itself to a single screen cinema when it became difficult to sustain the space on just live performances and eventually it closed doors. The clients were very clear on restoring this space as a cultural venue and back in its former glory as it was in 1916 and give it back to the city as it was always meant to be.
Going with the vision that the clients and consultants shared of recreating the Opera House, it was a mammoth task to resurrect it from the state it was in with leaking roofs, caved in stairwells, broken railings, completely distressed structural framework and home to insect infested interiors.
With careful attention to detail, the building was structurally restored in the first Phase to be able to carry out the interior fit out works with state of the art amenities of a modern day performance venue keeping with the interior character intact. This included adding HVAC, upgrading the electrical services, incorporating the Fire- fighting systems and the Stage craft mechanisms along with speaker systems clubbed with acoustics all juxtaposed together along with the interior finishes to restore the interiors as per original details.
