London’s Scala Cinema building in King’s Cross is being redeveloped as an arts venue and nightclub designed by Fashion Architecture Taste, Fat.
The Scala closed in 1993 after a costly legal battle with director Stanley Kubrick over a screening of A Clockwork Orange.
Fat, which calls itself an “architectural collaboration”, is hand-ling structural work, interiors and graphics. Fat has previously worked on the capital’s Leisure Lounge nightclub.
The venue will primarily be a nightclub but will function seven days a week with bars, a restaurant with a cinema screen and a snooker hall. A gallery space is also mooted, says Sean Griffiths, one of Fat’s directors. The club will open in October.
