Pontypool Market Hall

Austin-Smith:Lord was appointed by Torfaen County Borough Council as
design team leader, architect and conservation architect to undertake a multi phase project for the restoration of the Pontypool Market Hall.

The project includes the extensive restoration and refurbishment of the existing Victorian Market Hall and adjacent Jubilee Building and the insertion of contemporary new build elements.

Our design proposals reinvented the buildings and have placed them back at the heart of the community in Pontypool. The roofs, ceilings, steelwork and floors were restored to give a fresh feel to the interior of the building. The new stalls are sympathetic to the historic stalls which were also restored and their timber frames painted a selection of colours to give the market a vibrancy reflecting the produce on sale.

An amazing set of drawings!, I am really impressed with the proposed designs.
