St George's Hall
St George’s Hall, designed by Cyril Farey (1888-1954), was completed in 1929. An accomplished architect – in 1924 with Graham Dawbarn he won a British Empire-wide competition for Raffles College, Singapore – Farey is better known as the pre-eminent architectural perspectivist of his day, engaged by the likes of Edwin Lutyens and Frank Lloyd Wright to provide spectacular, technically accurate illustrations of their designs. Farey’s watercolour drawing of the proposed St George’s Hall, exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1927, was reproduced in black and white in Academy Architecture and Architectural Review andThe Builder. He subsequently amended the design, reducing the length of the structure, when the lowest builder’s tender was significantly over budget.
Cyril Farey’s hall for St George’s was designed in an eclectic Neo-Georgian style incorporating Art Deco features. The building includes a small hall, classrooms, an office, kitchen and lavatories on the ground floor, with a large hall/auditorium with stage and two-storey flat, above. There is a wheelchair-accessible WC on the ground floor and a stair lift to the first floor.
