London’s Metal-Clad Town Hall Hotel is a Radical Renovation of a Classic Building
The Edwardian town hall on Cambridge Heath Road fell on hard times in the 90’s, when the neo-classical building was rarely used save as a shooting location for films. It was bought by a hotel developer, and the building has undergone a remarkable metamorphosis that kept the classic interior kept intact while wrapping the exterior with a modern metal skin.
The design exhibits an interesting approach to working with historic architecture — it is contemporary yet it echoes the original design aesthetic (which was honored by the historical building society).
