  • Greenwich Town Hall, London

Other Information

  • The clock tower of Greenwich Town Hall was designed not only to function as a clock tower but also an observation tower and as such has a glazed viewing level at the top.
  • Despite a number of new town halls built in the 1930s and the supposed prevalence of Art Deco at the time, the building is described by Pevsner as "the only town hall of any London borough to represent the style of our time adequately."
  • The building is supposedly inspired by Art Deco Dutch civic buildings that were constructed in the 1930s, and in particular by Hilversum Town Hall.
  • The interior was designed to resemble that of an ocean liner, although much of it was torn out in the period between 1972-1974 in a modernisation project by Rolfe Judd Architects.
