Salters' Hall Tour
Date: Tuesday 26 February 2019
Join us for this exclusive tour of Salters’ Hall with Julian de Metz from De Metz Forbes Knight Architects.
After a complete refurbishment and extension by dMFK Architects, Sir Basil Spence’s Salters' Hall re opened in 2017, and has won several awards for its conservation including an RIBA Award, and the City Heritage Award.
The Grade II listed Brutalist style building, completed in 1976, has been extended, reorientated and rethought to fit the needs of contemporary occupancy. The refurbishment has secured the longevity of Spence’s original structure, restored some remarkable tooled concrete finishes, and completely re-serviced the building, improving its energy performance from and F to a B, and achieving BREEAM Excellent.
The entrance has been relocated in a new entrance pavilion which addresses a substantial new garden space, shared with Make Architects’ London Wall Place and which celebrates a large fragment of the original Roman London Wall. The public space that has been created involved the restoration and extension of landscaping around the building to both create additional and improved space for events, improving linkages and connections through new walkways at ground and high walk level to the wider City.
