Hornsey Town Hall – Iconic Setting in Central Crouch End N8
Apartment - Crouch End
The development is set around the restoration of the iconic Grade II* listed Hornsey Town Hall. The Town Hall will house a new art-centre, co-working space and hotel.
Town Hall Square has long been the heart of the Crouch End community. Over the years, the space has changed and evolved in use and appearance, reflecting the needs and tastes of the time.
In line with the wider restoration of the building, the Square will be rejuvenated to celebrate its original features, including the distinctive fountain and period street lighting. The central green space will still host the existing shady mature trees and lawn garden, while integrated seating will border the area and soft planting is set to bring bursts of colour.
The collection of studio, one, two and three bedroom apartments are spread across two newly built blocks, a mews building and a carefully restored Broadway annex in the Town Hall grounds. Make Architects has ensured that the new buildings capture the spirit and style of Hornsey Town Hall, with carefully thought out architectural influences and detail incorporated in both the exterior design and internal specification of the new build apartments.
This will be evident in the façades, where layered brickwork and carefully crafted geometric metal balustrades come together to reflect the Town Hall’s original Art Deco features and modern aesthetic along with the distinctive concrete pattern from the Hornsey Library.
Inside, the apartments will be fitted in accordance with the original Art Deco detailing, including features such as replica door handles, chevron timber flooring, terrazzo inspired surfaces, Art Deco style bathroom lighting, metal balustrade balcony detailing, referencing the distinctive 1930s décor present throughout the Town Hall.
