Oldham Town Hall

BDP was appointed by Oldham Council to regenerate its Grade II listed Old Town Hall and bring the building back into use as a cinema.

The development ensures certain architectural features and decorations are retained while allowing the building to have a new use. The existing ballroom, council chamber, committee rooms and court rooms have been kept and transformed into cinema screens, while a new extension, a translucent glass light-box, creates a new façade on Clegg Street. This extension is a central element in the development, providing a new entrance and foyers to the cinema areas, a façade towards a new pedestrian square and the Town Square shopping centre and an active and animated street environment, especially at night.
