History

The County Hall building was officially opened in 1922 by King George V after 11 years of construction (severely delayed by the First World War) by Holland, Hannen and Cubitts. The addition of both the North and South blocks took place in 1936 and 1939 respectively, with the Island block not completing until 1974. The main building was designed by young architect Ralph Knott, after he won a competition led by the London County Council’s Architects Department and the Institute of British Architects. The building is finished in an Edwardian Baroque style with Portland stone facing. Further extension to the North block was added along Chicheley Street in 1958, with an extension to the South block on Westminster Bridge Road finished in 1963.

For 64 years the development housed the headquarters of local government in London. For many years throughout the 1980’s the Ken Livingstone led Greater London Council was embroiled in conflict with Thatcher’s government. The County Hall development was conveniently just across the river from Parliament buildings, and as such served as a canvas for many anti-government slogans over the years. Thankfully, this political peacocking subsided in 1996, when County Hall was converted into residential homes. Further development continued over the next five years, and in 2000 the East and West blocks were completed.
