The State Theatre
HONG KONG, ASIA
Restoring Hong Kong’s last surviving movie palace, which during the 1950's was the home of live music in Hong Kong. The SRTC team are working with New World Development and architects WilkinsonEyre on designs to restore the iconic cultural landmark for the next generation.
The venue first opened back in 1952 but has been closed for the last two decades. A new life will be given to dilapidated cinema, the State Theatre building, a recently listed Grade I historic site at North Point on Hong Kong Island. Our scope of work includes the feasibility study and concept design phase during which the SRTC team are advising on acoustics, stage engineering, stage lighting and AV systems for the venue which is to host a wide range of performance arts.
As well as advising on modern stage technology systems for the new venue the SRTC team are also ensuring that much of the original features are retained in this historical venue such as the iconic parabolic exoskeleton truss at the roof. SRTC are proud to be associated with New World Development as they transform this new landmark venue for the arts.
