Olympia London Regeneration – Emberton House Building

First new building opens at £1.3bn Olympia redevelopment

12th of February 2024 – Olympia, one of Europe’s largest regeneration projects currently under development by Yoo Capital and Deutsche Finance International, marks the topping out of Emberton House, one of the landmark buildings within the £1.3bn transformation scheme.

Situated to the North of the site, Emberton House spans 60,000 sq ft of performing arts and educational space, the future home of Wetherby Arts School, and the 204-room Hyatt Regency Hotel. To celebrate this significant construction milestone, contractors Laing O’Rourke and the Olympia project team gathered on top of the building to mark the completion of the concrete frame.

Previously a private car park, the design transformation of Emberton House into a seven storey multi-use building has been led by London-based architecture studio SPPARC. Additional support for the fit out of the School and Hotel, has been delivered by HLM Architects and EPR.

Following the Topping Out stage, the site team will now progress with the facade and internal fit out with completion on track for Q4 2024.

Yvette Aunger, Construction Project Lead, Olympia, comments: “We’re thrilled to have reached the topping out stage of Emberton House. This is a monumental milestone for the entire site – one of the most technical elements of the build have taken place at Emberton House and we’re looking forward to the continuing progress to bring the architecture and fit-out to life.”

Trevor Morriss, Principal, SPPARC, said: “It is a pleasure to see the remodelling of the former Olympia multi-storey car park being topped out and renamed Emberton House after Joseph Emberton, the original architect of the 1937 building. The reuse of an early car park that is able to integrate and contribute into the wider Olympia vision has been a rewarding challenge and we’re delighted that the community will soon benefit from the new theatre and educational facilities.

Once completed, the delivery of the Estate wide Olympia masterplan will unite a rich tapestry of buildings under one coherent vision characterised by the ambition of the listed exhibition halls that were constructed with innovation and creativity at their centre. With this milestone at Emberton House, we’re one step closer to opening a new landmark for Londoners.”

Olympia will open its doors to the public in Summer 2025.
