 Fairfield Halls has undergone a major conservation project sympathetically upgrade the venue returning many features from the original 1962 building, while creating new sustainable community spaces.
 
Fairfield Halls in Croydon opened in 1962 to designs inspired by the Royal Festival Hall. By 2016 the venue had become run-down due to age, lack of maintenance and many unsympathetic interventions to the interior and exterior. The brief was to refurbish and re-model the halls, bringing a heritage-led approach, and where appropriate sensitively reinterpret the original designs, whilst improving access, operation and financial viability.  The project includes a new glazed extension, a second-floor studio theatre, roof terrace, improved acoustics and increased capacity; revitalising the existing venue.
