STUDIO APARTMENT IN THE HORNSEY TOWN HALL DEVELOPMENT
The collection of studio, one, two and three bedroom apartments are spread across two newly built blocks, a mews building and a carefully restored Broadway annex in the Town Hall grounds. Make Architects has ensured that the new buildings capture the spirit and style of Hornsey Town Hall, with carefully thought out architectural influences and detail incorporated in both the exterior design and internal specification of the new build apartments.
This will be evident in the façades, where layered brickwork and carefully crafted geometric metal balustrades come together to reflect the Town Hall’s original Art Deco features and modernist aesthetic along with the distinctive concrete pattern from the Hornsey Library.
Inside, the apartments will be fitted in accordance to the original Art Deco detailing, including features such as replica door handles, chevron timber flooring, terrazzo inspired surfaces, Art Deco style bathroom lighting, metal balustrade balcony detailing, referencing the distinctive 1930s décor present throughout the Town Hall.
In addition to Town Hall Square, the development includes a variety of gardens, courtyards and green walkways, each with its own distinct character and personality. At the heart of the site, the charming residential east wing garden will comprise a large central lawn, surrounded by attractive planting which will bring people together to socialise in the warmer months. From planted walkways and outdoor play areas to formal lawns and carefully curated flowerbeds, the selection of courtyards and gardens ensure greenery is rarely out of sight at Hornsey Town Hall.
Finished to the highest standards, the stylish apartments will include floor-to-ceiling windows in the open-plan living area, flooding the room with plenty of natural light. Referencing the original wood panelling and flooring in the Town Hall, chevron timber flooring will flow from the hallways through to the living spaces. In the kitchens, fully integrated appliances will provide state-of-the-art facilities for cooking and storage, while terrazzo inspired solid worktops will allow plenty of space for meal preparation.
With tall windows and white walls, the light and airy bedrooms are the ideal place to wind down at the end of the day. The built-in wardrobes are set to provide plenty of concealed storage space, and many of the master bedrooms will benefit from ensuite bathrooms and direct access to balconies or terraces. Lined with chevron porcelain wall and floor tiles, the sleek bathrooms will offer a contemporary take on Hornsey Town Hall’s modernist aesthetic. The mirrored storage cabinet and vanity unit feature satin nickel framing and opal lighting, bringing an Art Deco touch to the room. The large walk-in showers have both wall mounted and hand-held showers. The ensuite to the duplex apartments feature large freestanding bathtubs.
The majority of apartments at Hornsey Town Hall will feature balconies, terraces or small gardens, with direct access from either the living areas or master bedrooms. The balconies will be lined with detailed metal balustrades, reflecting the Town Hall’s distinctive exterior. The balconies will make for perfect spots to enjoy a morning coffee in the open air, while the terraces and gardens will be ideal for entertaining friends on balmy summer evenings.
