Village Hall

Celebrate at Village Hall

Symbolic Adaptation

Village Hall is an iconic building, rich in history, and one that has become symbolic to South Orange. It is not every day that a visionary gets the chance to work with a century-old structure, repurpose and bring it back to life. Being sensitive to its status as a Historical Landmark while paying homage to its importance within the community, the architectural design celebrates and highlights different aspects of the original building. The new adaptations focus on incorporating a hospitable warmth while introducing contemporary comfort, mixing old and new expertly.

Well-appointed indoor and outdoor spaces, featuring reclaimed timber, distressed metals, string lighting, and unique games -create intimate moments throughout the sprawling space. Village Hall will feature, Rossiter and Wright Tavern, a nod to the building’s original architects, the Pump House Biergarten and an event space featuring a separate pre-function area and a well-appointed bridal suite.
