The Hammersmith Apollo, now recognised by the name Eventim Apollo has undergone a massive renovation to restore the building’s 1930 heritage features.

The brief was to transform the façade of the building, making it brighter by accentuating its Art Deco columns and iconic marquee, making an impressive visual impact.

Heritage Considerations

James Morse Lighting Design turned to specialist lighting solution provider Architainment Lighting, who carefully considered a range of Philips Color Kinetics fixtures to highlight the heritage features on the façade of the building. Architainment specified ColorBurst Compact PCColorBlast PC and ColorReach Compact PC which were all selected to meet the strict requirements from English Heritage, who had the responsibility to ensure the buildings listed status was not damaged and that the Art Deco nature be preserved.

The re-born Eventim Apollo now stands boldly, proudly flying the flag and retaining its position at the heart of British music.
