Deco living: the Hoover Building takes on a new lease of life as an apartment block

Deco living: the Hoover Building takes on a new lease of life as an apartment block

Wallis, Gilbert & Partners’ iconic Hoover Building has taken on many roles over its 86-year lifespan – once a wartime factory, then a commercial supermarket and office block. Today, the London building starts its latest chapter as a residential complex, following an interior and exterior overhaul by trandisciplinary architecture and engineering practice Interrobang. The renovation carefully conserves the building’s art deco heritage, co-ordinating a comprehensive repair of the exterior façade and incorporation of a new inserted timber structure to maximise space. The building now houses 66 modern apartments and is a model of sustainable conversion.
