These are the first images of John McAslan + Partners’s proposals to revamp and convert the Grade II*-listed 1930s Hornsey Town Hall into an arts complex
The scheme for the ‘municipal style’ building Crouch End, north London includes a two-screen art house cinema in the remodelled gallery space as well as a new bar and 300-400 seat performance space in the former assembly hall.
The practice took on the project - then budgeted at £15 million - last September following initial feasability work by DSDHA.
Split into three phases, the first stage of the scheme will consist of a £12 million package of ‘essential works’ to the town hall’s structure and other general refubishment.
The proposals, which are being funded by Haringey Council and mastermined by the Hornsey Town Hall Community Partnership Board, are expected to go to planning in October 2009 and that construction will start on site in early 2010. Work is due to complete in 2012.
