We recently had the pleasure of completing a signature project, the refurbishment of Lindley Hall in Westminster.
This classic Edwardian building is owned by the Royal Horticultural Society and used for a wide range of events.
Dating back to 1904, the Hall is an echo of Britain at its finest. King Edward VII wanted the Royal Horticultural Society to have its own purpose-built exhibition space, and performed the opening ceremony in July 1904, together with the Society’s patron Queen Alexandra. The building was named after English botanist John Lindley.
Design of the hall was by Edwin J Stebbs. He chose red brick with stone dressings and banding, with Arts and Crafts features and Renaissance details. Stebbs wanted to achieve as much natural light as possible and the glass roof has stood the test of time well. Now, with a sliding shutter mechanism open the hall is flooded with light but also offers the alternative of a full blackout.
Besides a wide range of public and private events including conferences, exhibitions, fashion shows, banquets, weddings, and product launches the hall also provides a stunning backdrop for music videos, car launches, adverts and films.
It’s a special part of our job that we get to work on such beautiful landmark buildings. All our clients, whether private homeowners or institutions, want to make the best of the property they have. Our team have been with us for years. They are trusted competent workmen who take ownership of the job and a project like this is a real source of pride.
If you’re thinking about a nice make-over for the Spring, I’ll be more than happy to get a man over to you for an estimate to do the job.
