This historical theatre has undergone an exciting refurbishment to return it to its former glory which included a total revamp of the welcoming and entertaining areas; planting for two terraces leading out from the impressive Grand Salon; and exciting designs for adjacent hip new café/restaurant, The Garden.
Designing the Theatre Entrance
The foyer of the Theatre Royal Drury Lane makes an impactful point of entrance with large statement trees and striking decorative pots which create height and complement the beautiful Regency columns and high ceilings. The planting throughout reflects the grand proportions of each room. Large palm trees and urns catch the eye and combine faux, preserved and real planting to provide longevity as well as maximum effect.
The terraces are especially popular in the warmer months and have a classical but clean, fresh look to reflect the elegant interior designs and tones. Large zinc planters with traditional clay pots combine simple yet strong materials and pattern. Layered planting and topiary elements break up the seating and add privacy, ambience and year-round interest. Smaller pots and trough planters around the perimeter cascade with colourful seasonal planting making this a delightful spot to relax in or to admire from the Grand Salon.
The Garden Restaurant in London
The Garden restaurant is the place to be before or after a production or at any time really! With indoor and outdoor seating, this all-day destination is a fantastical space with a gorgeous melange of climbers, ferns, industrial York stone, soaring ceilings and galvanised planters – it has a raw, uncut vibe with the magical feel of a verdant glade. It’s another welcome feather in the bow of the new revitalised Theatre Royal.
