Royal Opera House

Specialist solar control glass

The project

The Royal Opera House is one of the most iconic buildings in London. Romag were commissioned to supply specialist glass for the impressive barrel vault roof of floral hall adjacent to the main building, which was renamed to Paul Hamlyn Hall following its refurbishment in 2005.

Historically, it formed part of the old Covent Garden flower market, and its design is so iconic, it is the governing leitmotif for Lerner and Loewe's Broadway musical, ‘My Fair Lady’.

As well as acting as a main public area for performances in the main theatre, the Paul Hamlyn Hall is also used for hosting a number of events, including private functions, dances, exhibitions, concerts, and workshops.

Romag were tasked to supply the specialist, low iron, curvedlaminated glass panels for the building that also provide solar control to maintain an ambient temperature without compromising the traditional design of the building.

Romag’s solar control glass significantly reduces unwanted solar heat gain in the summer, whilst also insulating for optimum solar control in winter - significantly reducing the reliance on heating and air-conditioning systems internally all year round, and lowering the carbon footprint of the building as well as respecting heritage of the building.
