Sneak Peek: The Salters' Hall Refurbishment

Located in the heart of the City, Salters’ Hall combines the rich heritage of the salt trade of medieval London with contemporary surroundings. Rebuilt in 1972 by Basil Spence and now a Grade II listed building, it is a rare example of a post-war livery building and has remained largely untouched until now...

Architects de Metz Forbes Knight (dMFK) were tasked with the project to upgrade the building whilst retaining its sense of history and also improving how the building fits within its surroundings - no mean feat - but the highly anticipated refurb is due for completion in May 2016 and Hire Space are here to give you an exclusive first look at what’s in store.

The Building

The imposing 4,200sq/m building will be accessed through a newly built pavilion entrance. The new design will take advantage of the stature of the building, with lofty ceilings and floor to ceiling windows and a glazed roof that allows views to the upper levels of the building. The outside will be covered in bronze aluminium that mimics the fluted wooden panelling in the main ceremonial hall.

The pavilion entrance

The grand ceremonial rooms will remain largely the same, retaining their grandeur with the renovation of the fluted ash panels that adorn the walls, deep red carpets and refurbished ironmongery. The huge height of the ceiling provides outstanding acoustics and a show-stopping effect for any kind of event, from grand banquets, to concerts and weddings.

Glazing has also been upgraded across the building, along with the concrete exterior. The upper-level offices have been overhauled and the previous undercroft entrance has been developed into spacious, modern offices.

Concrete Exterior

But what makes this venue a real gem is what’s outside, it overlooks the new London Wall Place development which extends to one acre surrounding the building. It’s a beautiful oasis within the hustle and bustle of the city, featuring water features, suspended walkways a medieval church and even a section of the actual Roman London Wall. Salters’ Hall also has it’s own secret, secluded garden; a charming space ideal for drinks and wedding receptions.

Slater's Hall

Salters’ Hall has a variety of spaces making it a perfect venue for any occasion from grand banquets to awards dinners, meetings and weddings. Catering for all types of event is provided by Inn or Out Events an experienced team that can provide the perfect menu and wine selection for all events, using locally sourced ingredients and years of expertise.

Set to reopen in May 2016, Salters’ Hall is more than your average livery hall and interest is already high. So if you want to be one of the first to use this fantastic space, get in touch about an exclusive advance tour at
