LONDON.- Ladbroke Hall
in Notting Hill will present a new stage on which to experience creative expression in its many forms: contemporary art, collectible design, culture, dining and music. The reimagined 43,000 square foot space will be a meeting place celebrating creative freedom. Connecting to the renewed cultural vitality in the area, Ladbroke Hall will open to the public, friends, patrons and collaborators in spring 2023.
Ladbroke Hall is steered by Loïc Le Gaillard and Julien Lombrail, founders of Carpenters Workshop Gallery, the global leading gallery in collectible design and functional art whose London gallery space will now be based in Ladbroke Hall with its other galleries in Paris, New York and Los Angeles.

Loïc Le Gaillard, co-founder of Ladbroke Hall, says For years we have been exploring new ways to set a stage for creative freedom. Ladbroke Hall will be a new playground to explore creativity in all its forms and meet interesting people. Its part of our DNA to push and blur the lines between the many artistic disciplines.
Julien Lombrail, co-founder of Ladbroke Hall, adds We wanted to create a holistic place transcended by different artistic visions - a Gesamtkunstwerk. With Ladbroke Hall were realising our vision of a temple for the arts where we want to spend time.
Ladbroke Hall has been intricately restored and renovated over the past three years. Formerly the Sunbeam Talbot Motorworks HQ which was built in 1903, parts of the Grade II listed building have been redeveloped by Adjaye Associates. They have retained the buildings original fabric and enriched it with pared back exhibition spaces.
As part of Ladbroke Halls vision, a community programme will be a central part of its ethos. It will collaborate with established local artists and youth initiatives in the field of art, design, music and dining for education and mentoring opportunities.
