Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, Liverpool, England, U.K.

Renovated concert hall, covered in an architectural review in the Guardian. Not a restoration but a merging of old an new.

From the review:

If you wandered into the newly renovated and extended Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, you’d be forgiven for thinking that nothing much had been done to it. It looks and feels like a late-1930s structure, in an intriguing sort of civic art deco, half Dutch in influence and half American, a combination of picture palace and classical concert hall, with notes of ocean liner. In fact the hall is and has always been such a place, but rather than retrieve its original decor from decades of minor alterations, the architects Caruso St John have tuned the building such that it becomes an altered and enhanced version of its former self.

This has partly been done with paint, with a palette of rich green, gold, purple, lemon yellow and grey that is somewhat in the mood of the original, but is distributed about the building’s spaces in a new way. Other means include the placing of fittings and artificial light. Thus, in the high, pillared first-floor bar, reached by broad flights of steps, walls and ceiling are in the same strong green, with some details in gold and a central chandelier in reused clear glass bottles so placed that it can be glimpsed through the windows from the street outside. The effect is to give more presence to the room, with a stronger sense of enclosure, at the same time as communicating the building’s inner animation to the city beyond. The auditorium, previously magnolia, is painted white, which makes it livelier.

This is the bar, mentioned above:

How Odin Brought the Mead

And now another wonderful change took place. Bolverk had entered as a worm, but no sooner had he drunk the mead than in an instant he became a eagle, and before Gunlad knew what had happened, with splendid wings outspread he was rising upward in broad, easy flight. Through the still air, faster and faster, higher and higher, in wide circles that swept far round the summits of the mountains, in swift majestic flight he rose until the earth had vanished out of sight, and his mighty pinions beat against the gates of Asgard.

“Go for it kiddo.”
