London’s Royal Opera House is in the north east corner of Covent Garden. Overlooking the piazza is a 5th floor decking area of around 600sqm. For the last 25 years this was a hardwood deck, but when Stanton Williams Architects were asked to oversee the redevelopment of this area a new deck was an integral part of the plan.
Originally a rest area for staff at the Royal Opera House, the decking area was to be re-purposed as part restaurant, part relaxation area, part meeting space, and part open air dance training studio.
The Outdoor Deck Company was commissioned to install the Grad decking system supplied by Alfresco Floors.
The finished deck is part of a major transformation of the Royal Opera House and has been open to the public since September 2018.
