Sotheby's Olympia doubles saleroon space


SOTHEBY’S IS to build a new saleroom at Olympia in Kensington, West London. The new saleroom, which will run in conjunction with Sotheby’s existing flagship New Bond Street saleroom, will be located on an entire floor of the Olympia Two building, and cover an area of 54,000 square feet.


Robin Woodhead, Chief Executive of Sotheby’s Europe and Asia said: “We are delighted to make this announcement of this exciting development. Olympia is a landmark building and is already known in the art and antiques world as an international venue for fine art and antiques fairs. The new saleroom will allow us to double our existing selling space in London. Olympia is an unrivalled location with good communication, access by tube, rail and road, together with dedicated public car-parking, and we look forward to opening there in September.”


The property is owned by Earls Court and Olympia Group, whose Chief Executive, Andrew Morris, said he believed the move would reinforce Olympia’s position as London’s premier location for art and antiques.


“There is no doubt that Sotheby’s auctions will bring much extra national and international focus to West London, and will attract important and valuable clients to Olympia. This will benefit our own customers who have worked with us to make the Olympia Fine Art and Antiques Fairs synonymous with quality the world over.”
