A mixed-use scheme with a neon sign and a rotating theatre in Soho
This 5,000 sqm project revitalises one of Soho’s seediest alleyways and has restored a globally recognised icon of Soho, the neon ‘Raymond Revuebar’ sign, to prominence in the West End’s night–time panorama. The mixed–use scheme is designed around a new rotating 150-seat theatre on the site of the once famous Boulevard Theatre — the venue which gave ‘The Comic Strip’ its first home.
The project also includes a new headquarters for Soho Estates above the old Raymond Revuebar (now ‘The Box’ nightclub), as well as a new home for Madame JoJo’s nightclub alongside shops, apartments, and a new restaurant.
MATT Architecture led the architectural design of this iconic site through a very complicated planning application process to successful permission in 2014.
