Lyric Theatre Neon

Artist: David Batchelor
Location: Hammersmith, London
Completion: Due 2014

At 9m high and almost 5m wide, this neon artwork is a focal point of the refurbished Lyric Theatre in Hammersmith. The arrangement is an enlarged replication of an original detail from the theatre that creates a connection between the new facade with the history of the building.

The neon is supported on a series of bespoke connections that are specially designed to penetrate the new finish and insulation of the facade to get to the block walls inside without compromising thermal performance or waterproofing.
