Located within our
wider Walker’s Court scheme in Soho, the Boulevard Theatre represents a
radical new performance space for London; with one of the most technologically
advanced auditoriums in the world – fully revolving at balcony and stalls
levels to create flexible and adaptable performance spaces and seating layouts
within a constricted site.
The project opened in late 2019 and was designed in close collaboration with Charcoal Blue Theatre consultants and using cutting-edge VR
technology to develop the configurations and interior finishes. The design
accommodates the varying identities of the space, from day to night, cabaret to
catwalk and theatre-in-the-round and the result is a striking and modern
aesthetic which compliments the energy of the surrounding Soho night life.
SODA has designed the theatre from top to bottom, including the architecture
and interior design, branding and wayfinding and even creating a bespoke chair
(in collaboration with Race Furniture), designed to reflect the art-deco
inspired spaces and heritage of the site.
