Tower Hamlets Town Hall wins Civic Trust Award 25.03.24

Tower Hamlets Town Hall has won a Civic Trust Award and a Special Award for Reuse and Adaptation.

Tower Hamlets Town Hall, the new headquarters 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 extension. The move to the site consolidates a number of the council’s offices into one location, and offers a broad range of public services to the borough’s residents, in a more accessible location in Whitechapel. The project embodies the Council’s vision to create a healthy, sustainable, and flexible work environment for their staff combined with front facing facilities and services for their residents in an open and welcoming environment.

Bringing the centre of local government back to the heart of the borough has had a significant impact on Tower Hamlets’ 320,000 residents. Through a strategic programme of community engagement during the projects early design stages, the community’s sense of involvement has been strengthened with residents and local traders invested in the outcome of the building. The project has been universally welcomed since its completion as something being given back to the community. The ground floor reinforces this feeling through providing accessible council services and a rolling programme of exhibitions, summer schools and community workshops served by a community café. Residents are encouraged to take an interest in local government with clear views into the council chamber and generous public seating provision within.
