The UK’s oldest surviving film studios is to receive a makeover.
The redevelopment of Ealing Studios in West London is to have a new 14,00 sq ft sound stage together with new workshops, a new entrance reception together with more office space.
Glencar have been appointed to carry out this makeover and the new White Ibstock Engobe brick building is designed to honour the Art Deco aesthetic of the 1930’s Grade 11 listed stages which still exist at the studios.
Glencar are to work alongside Pella Real Estate Partners and also Christoper Smith Associates with the project expected to take up to 18 months to complete. The architect for the project is Create Design.
Ealing Studios have been making films since 1902 such as the well known productions of Passport to Pimlico, Whisky Galore, Kind Hearts & Coronets, The Lavender Hill Mob and The Man in the White Suit to name but a few.
