Last week I visited Salter’s Hall in the City of London, as part of a tour held for the London Festival of Architecture.

Lovely to see the inside of this fine brutalist building, designed by Basil Spence (1976), with interiors by David Hicks, and more recently refurbished and extended by dMKF architects (2016).

The ash panelled banqueting hall is just gorgeous, beautiful details. David Hicks said of the carpet’s colours ‘they don’t clash, they vibrate’.
