Registrars Office & Marriage Room – Bury Town Hall (1994)

Here at the bottom of a light well crisscrossed with large service ducts above a space that seemed hostile and giving access to a truck size safe with cold cast Georgian wired glass down on a long wall to the corridor seemed to be an inviting space for marriages.

The design is focused around the lucky couple with intensification of the ceiling and flor pattern at the point of marriage. The waiting room had to work around other large ducts in the same space – this was solved by generating a bent plasterboard wall to one side of the aviabale space.

 A new service hatch was also provided for the Births Marriages and deaths Registers office.

A level approach was also require for wheelchair access from the exterior.
