31 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, NW1
Designed in 1900 by Lewen Sharp, this Grade II* Listed theatre is dominated by the highly ornate high level statues of angels.
Originally constructed in Bath stone, the façade has been repeatedly repainted over the years, resulting in the subsequent deterioration of the stone.
Once the paint had been stripped back to the bare substrate, all defective sections of Bath stone were identified and reinstated to their original profiles using TBR Bath Stone Mortar mix and brass reinforcement where necessary.
Upon completion of the stone restoration works, the façade was redecorated using the Keim Granital Mineral Paint System.
In addition, new lead weathering details were introduced to the projecting elements of the façade, all existing joinery was refurbished, and the Apollo Theatre raised lettering refixed and regilded. Finally the metalwork above the entrance canopy was refurbished.
In conjunction with the external works, incidental refurbishment were carried out internally to the vestibule area.
Following the completion of the main external works, a new external lighting system will illuminate this famous London landmark.
