The Athenaeum Theatre in Lilydale, Victoria is an iconic local building established in 1888. This heritage listed building has been home of the Lilydale Theatre Company since 1975 and recently underwent a refurbishment. When looking to change the theatre seating, the Company contacted Alloyfold with the brief to provide a comfortable, modern seat that has a classic look to fit in with the heritage of the building. After a sample approval process, Alloyfold was commissioned to provide 212 Mozart venue seats.
The installation carried out by the Alloyfold Australia team involved working with the heritage building guidelines and providing builders with guidance on how to design the tiers to accommodate the riser mount seating and the fixed seating into the theatre.
