Stockwell Studios is now a listed Grade II building!


We are delighted to inform you that having considered our recommendation the Minister with responsibility in this matter, the Minister for Tourism and Heritage, has decided to add Former Annie McCall Hospital to the List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest. The building is now listed at Grade II. Gosia McCabe (Designation Co-ordinator – South, English Heritage). 12th October 2011

The Annie McCall Hospital is listed at Grade II for the following principal reasons:

Hospital played a vital part in the network of pioneering women doctors in the late C19th, and the growing acceptance of women in the medical profession well into the C20th.

Architectural interest: the purpose-built wing, designed by Hart and Waterhouse and dating to 1915, has a smart red-brick facade with stone dressings and a handsome doorcase. There is also an extension of 1938 by Gertrude Leverkus, an early female architect

State of preservation: there has been little alteration to the building since it opened and it retains its wood floors, terrazzo-paved corridors, original window joinery and one fireplace, which enhance our understanding of how the building functioned.
