Tottenham Town Hall, Tottenham

Client : Newlon Housing Trust

Through careful refurbishment Tottenham Town Hall was rescued from the English Heritage ‘at risk’ register and since transformed into a stunning venue for the local community to use and enjoy. Works to the original Grade II Listed Edwardian Baroque Town Hall involved complete external and internal refurbishment, including the grand foyer and Moselle Room with its stunning Moorish-Jacobean style ceiling. Brickwork and stonemasonry restoration was undertaken along with repairs to the original timber windows, large marble staircase and intricate Italian terrazzo mosaic floor tiling.

A salvage strategy enabled the recycling of existing materials, ensuring both the character of the building was upheld and significant cost savings were delivered for the client. Working to provide a focus for the community, public and key stakeholder engagement was undertaken throughout the project, resulting in a building which has functional spaces for businesses, an MP’s surgery, a café and flexible meeting spaces.

The quality of this scheme was recognised at the London Planning Awards 2014/15, where Tottenham Town Hall, along with adjacent residential development Isobel Place, was named as Best Heritage Led Project.
