Basic Biographical Details

Name: K D Young & Hall
Designation: Architectural practice
Started: Before 1886
Ended: After 1895
Bio Notes: Henry Hall was born at Wansford, Lincolnshire in 1826 and articled to Pilkington & Bell from 1843, subsequently became assistant first to Edward Blore and then William Allen Boulnois. In 1880 Hall entered the Glasgow Municipal Buildings competition jointly with Andrew Thomas Taylor. In 1882 they came second in the first stage of the second competition with a design by Taylor, the winner William Young, being instructed to adopt certain features of the plan. The cost of entering the final tier may have caused trouble as Taylor wrote appealing for an uplift in the 150 second premium as it had not covered the staff costs of entering. Taylor subsequently entered into partnership with George William Hamilton Gordon and later Keith Downes Young (born 1848), the son of George Adam Young, who had entered his father's office in 1865 and been his partner from 1872.
