Olympia London is a destination for world class events, culture and heritage.
Dating from 1887, the 14-acre site includes the Grade II*-listed Grand Hall, National Hall, Olympia Central and Olympia West. This will be tranformed to include restaurants, hotels, theatre and music venues, office space and 2.5 acres of new public space. Eckersley O’Callaghan is providing facade design serivces for seven buildings in the masterplan.
Olympia Central is a new 11-storey office building of 500,000sf NIA incorporating a retained listed facade on Hammersmith Road that will act as main entrance for the office space. We are carrying out glare, illuminance and sun radiation analysis, with the use of an in-house script to optimise the glass design and influence the final appearance of the building.
Olympia West Concert Hall will be refurbished and extended to include an additional third and fourth floors with retained brick facade, new curtain walling and glass box entrance.
The National Hotel will see a 145-room hotel constructed above an existing listed building. The facade features curved zinc-coloured cladding and glazed curtain walling. A new arched glass canopy with a zig-zag form echoing the historic facades will span 24m over a public realm space incorporating F&B uses.
MSCP Hotel transforms an existing car park into a co- working office and hotel building with new and retained facades including curved bay windows with ribbon spandrels clad in brickwork.
G-Gate Theatre will be a 6,000m2 performing arts centre clad in precast concrete and a fully glazed curtain wall elevation onto Hammersmith Road.
Energy Centre is a site-wide CHP plant room clad with louvres and terracotta-like diamond shape elements.
