Project Overview

Set in the heart of the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea, the structure to be demolished was the iconic Kensington Odeon Cinema, located on Kensington High Street. Prior to hard demolition, we assisted the Museum of London by providing access for a full photographic survey of the original 1930’s Art Deco building, after stripping away the 1970’s refurbishment. Structural investigations carried out found that the auditorium was a ‘2 pin box structure’ which presented a potential stability issue.
