Bennetts Associates has worked with the Old Vic theatre to carry out a refresh of the existing foyer spaces whilst funding is being secured for a major transformation project.
The project included a new box-office and bars, floor finishes, lighting and signage and the complete refurbishment of the lower ground floor bar as an all-day café. The work was carried out in the summer of 2015 whilst the theatre was in full operation and incorporated the theatre’s new brand identity. Our design strategy proposed the use of simple plywood joinery, hardwood floors and white-painted walls throughout. The team collaborated with artists and designers, incorporating a wall painting by Chris Martin and a chandelier by Old Vic Associate Designers Hugh Vanstone and Rob Howell.
