As with all works undertaken within the O2 ICON Outlet, the programme was carefully worked around the music concerts and sporting events held at the O2 in order to minimise disturbance.
This success of this project was heavily reliant on the provision of high quality F&B for package guests and we worked closely with the chosen catering provider to ensure the design and installation of the kitchen allowed the service team to operate at full capacity each evening.
The project was completed to a very tight programme and within a tight budget and successfully opened in October 2021. The interior was completed and dressed by the client’s production design team as an integral part of the space, using recycled materials where possible. The design team also retained elements of the existing nightclub to reduce material use and embodied carbon. The voids below the terraces form large plenums, supplying air via attenuated vents in the venues scenery to reduce acoustic interference during performances.
A highlight for our team was being invited to one of the opening nights and sitting close to ABBA’s Benny and Björn.
