Join us for an exclusive opportunity to hear more about this RIBA Award winning building from the architects who designed it.As part of this series of events showcasing 2019's Award winners, Hugh Broughton Architects will be giving us a tour of The Painted Hall.


This inspirational project has restored and conserved Sir James Thornhills’ 3,700m² of painted surfaces, among the most important Baroque interiors in Europe. With the internal environment stabilised through the inventive reuse of the building, this wonderful space is now a significant place to visit in London.


The attention to detail and craftsmanship across the project is testament to a successful, collaborative relationship between the client and architect. The incredible chance find of the remains of Henry VII’s palace by workmen during the restoration work has been successfully been incorporated into the space, further enriching the visitor experience.


This scheme has won a RIBA London Award 2019, RIBA London Conservation Award 2019 and RIBA National Award 2019.
