Fitting to realise the aspirations of the livery company
Eric Parry Architects for The Leathersellers’ Company
Contract value: £35.1m
This development returns The Leathersellers’ Hall to the site of its earliest location in the City. The new building sits behind a listed facade looking to the south. The south elevation is clad in articulated ceramic tiles with a richness of detail reflecting the craftsmanship of the interior. A new double-height livery company hall sits within the basement of the existing building.
The stair hall, reception room and court room provide the three principal spaces at ground floor level. Connected to the more modest entrance lobby, they allow a natural circulation down the oval stair to the dining hall. The finely crafted interiors are fitting to realise the aspirations of the livery company.
