Hatch End High School in Harrow – Interior upgrade

The 600 seats Auditorium is part of the large building complex of Hatch End High School in Harrow. It was built in the 50s and its interiors have been left untouched since. The Auditorium, including the performance area, the audience space and the foyer area, was in much need of interiors, lighting and sound equipment upgrade.

The refurbishment has given back to the school an Auditorium with elegant, comfortable and vibrant spaces: the new colour scheme and the lighting arrangement have soften and modernized the interiors.

The foyer area has been addressed to make the entrance to the building attractive to the users; the differentiation in floor and wall colours gives an artistic touch inviting and guiding the users through the main entrance doors into the audience space.
