Tower Hamlets Town Hall - EH Smith

Tower Hamlets Town Hall


Tower Hamlets Town Hall, the new offices for the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, encompasses the restoration of the Grade II listed former Royal London Hospital building, and the addition of a new build extension.

The Georgian façade of the existing Grade II listed building has been restored along with the interior, using an approach of honest intervention where the fabric of the old is stitched together with the new with striking effect.

The new six-storey extension building consolidates several council offices into one location, providing a contemporary working environment for 2470 staff. A combination of a yellow clamp-fired stock, deep black hand-formatic and a crafted brown glazed brick combine to create a distinctive new façade.
