Hornsey Town Hall is a North London landmark. The modernist venue has a rich history as a hub for local events and council activities, but in recent decades it’s fallen into disrepair. We’re restoring this much-loved building and adding a variety of spaces so a new generation of people can enjoy its civic charms.
Our sensitive design comprises a full architectural and interior refurbishment of the Grade II*-listed town hall to transform it into an arts centre and hotel. The majority of the building will be dedicated to public use, with new community and events spaces as well a café and a co-working hub. The redevelopment also includes a restaurant and new flats in the Grade II-listed annex next door, plus three new apartment blocks.
The local community will now have open access to the town hall’s famed council rooms, including new event spaces in the Assembly Hall, Committee Room and Council Chamber. And they’ll be able to enjoy improved landscaping in the Town Hall Square as well as the new Town Hall Gardens by Hornsey Library – outdoor spaces that can be used for art installations, markets and more. We’ve taken care to choose a materials palette for the scheme that will enhance the town hall’s setting while respecting its historical significance, with features and finishes that complement its stately Art Deco design.
Our restoration prioritises art, education and community, securing the town hall’s future as a neighbourhood focal point – a gathering place for locals and visitors alike.
A phenomenal amount of love and dedication has gone into this project. We're excited to bring this beautiful heritage building back into use for the local community and London at large.
