Hackney Town Hall
by HawkinsBrown

Hawkins\Brown worked with London Borough of Hackney, English Heritage and Hackney Conservation Department on the repair, restoration and renovation of the 1937 Grade II listed Hackney Town Hall.

A holistic design approach has enhanced the functionality and performance of the building. State of the art technology, services and bespoke joinery are carefully blended into the original fabric with the original palette of bronze, marble, walnut and oak retained. The works have involved specialist craftspeople and careful consideration has gone into every detail to restore original Art Deco features.
