RIBA award-winning architects Purcell have been appointed to lead the design team for the redevelopment of the iconic Hornsey Town Hall in Crouch End. Purcell has over six decades of experience, with an excellent record working on comparable heritage and arts projects, notably St Paulâ€™s Cathedral, the National Maritime Museum and Theatre Royal Haymarket.
Mountview's Chairman, Vikki Heywood CBE, commented â€œwe are absolutely delighted to be working with Purcell whose experience of the restoration and redevelopment of heritage buildings is first class.â€ This news follows on from successfully securing initial support, including a development grant of Â£482,000, from the Heritage Lottery Fund last year. The appointment of Purcell is a key moment in this transformational project to refurbish a distinguished Grade II* listed building as a new home for Mountview and bring it back to life for arts, cultural and educational use.
