Hull City Hall

Hull City Hall in Queen Victoria Square is a grade II listed building, built in Baroque Revival style between 1903–09 by Hull's City architect Joseph Hirst. We were contracted to carry out a full internal redecoration of the main entrance way, staircases, lobbies, main bar and toilets.

Project description

The project involved the complete external redecoration and internal redecoration of the main staircase, hall and circulation areas. In order to carry out the redecoration, we had to remove and rehang the wallpaper, including picking out ceiling beams/bosses in feature colours. The staircase required a full “birdcage” scaffold to be erected to execute the work in a safe manner. The work took two months to complete.


A Dulux paint system was specified with William Morris wall paper manufactured by Sanderson. All the ceiling features were gold leafed as part the work.
