Royal Albert Hall

As part of an ongoing programme of refurbishment at the Royal Albert Hall, Originate has recently completed the design of the new cafe, bar and box office at the south entrance, known as Door 12. This space has been formed out of a series of existing rooms, opened up to create the largest public space on the ground floor of the hall.

Working closely with English Heritage and Westminster Listed Buildings, Originate has striven to reveal the original architecture of the building and restore important features, such as the tiled Victorian floors. Juxtaposed against this backdrop, the new elements of the bar, lighting and furniture are deliberately contemporary.
