Updated: Nov 8, 2023

ABM Tiling, a leading tiling company based in London, is proud to announce the near completion of our project at Hornsey Town Hall for Ardmore Construction. While this historical landmark faced some delays, the exceptional work carried out by ABM Tiling and Ardmore Construction has breathed new life into this Grade II* listed building. Located in Crouch End Broadway, North London, the Hornsey Town Hall restoration project is a testament to preserving the past while embracing the future. In this blog post, we'll explore the transformation of Hornsey Town Hall and ABM Tiling's contributions to this iconic development.


Preserving History and Embracing the Future:

Hornsey Town Hall, with its rich history spanning nearly 80 years, is a Grade II* listed building. This landmark development project aimed to preserve the building's historical significance while adding contemporary elements. The project includes the meticulous restoration of the Town Hall, transforming it into an arts centre and hotel, alongside an improved public square and a newly constructed collection of studio, one, two, and three-bedroom apartments in the Town Hall grounds.

The Hotel Experience:

One of the highlights of the Hornsey Town Hall project is the hotel located within the restored Town Hall building. Operated by Dao by Dorsett, the hotel offers a unique co-working hub, tailored for creatives and entrepreneurs. This open-plan space provides an ideal environment to work and appreciate the historical charm of the Town Hall. Additionally, a 24/7 concierge service is available in the Town Hall building.

The hotel comprises four floors, featuring a mix of serviced aparthotels. Many of the rooms, such as the old Borough Treasurer’s room, retain their original ironmongery and timber panelling, which stretch from floor to ceiling. These unique features have been carefully cleaned and paired with modern pendant lighting and terrazzo-inspired worktops, creating a perfect blend of period and contemporary fittings.


Modern Apartments in a Historic Setting:

The collection of studio, one, two, and three-bedroom apartments at Hornsey Town Hall spans across newly constructed blocks and the restored annex building lining Town Hall Square. All these apartments offer open-plan living areas, spacious bedrooms, and access to communal gardens.


The sleek bathrooms within these apartments are designed to reflect the modernist aesthetic of Hornsey Town Hall. They are lined with chevron porcelain wall and floor tiles, adding a contemporary touch to the historical setting. Mirrored storage cabinets and vanity units feature satin nickel framing and opal lighting, infusing an Art Deco touch into the room. The large walk-in showers come with both wall-mounted and hand-held showers, providing a luxurious bathing experience. Moreover, the ensuite bathrooms in the duplex apartments feature large freestanding bathtubs for a touch of opulence.


Terrazzo Repairs and In-Situ Terrazzo Installation:

ABM Tiling has been awarded the Terrazzo repair work for the Town Hall bathrooms, along with in-situ terrazzo repairs for areas of the lobby floors. These terrazzo repairs showcase ABM Tiling's expertise in preserving and restoring historical features, ensuring that the Hornsey Town Hall maintains its original charm.


In conclusion, ABM Tiling's contributions to the Hornsey Town Hall project are a testament to our dedication to quality tiling services and preserving historical landmarks. The transformation of this Grade II* listed building into a modern yet historically rich space is a testament to ABM Tiling's commitment to excellence.
