Fulham Town Hall
Utilising the Town Hall as a Shopping Centre & Leisure Quarter
Reinventing the historic wheel
To convince the local council and Historic England that this Grade 2* Town Hall could be utilised as a shopping and leisure quarter with new residential apartments above.
The challenge was to retain the historic heart of this ‘high’ Victorian building, whilst simultaneously inserting new contemporary retail and residential uses. This involved the careful use of 3 key ‘ultra’ historic rooms, the fabulous Grand Hall, the Mayor’s Parlour and the Borough Engineers’s office to create a new flagship store for Maclaren Buggies, a new men’s Jewellery store and a contemporary dispensary.
