|Copyright 1||London Borough of Merton|
|Notes / History||This striking curved building was constructed by Bernard Sunley & Sons and dates from 1960. It was built on the former site of the Crown Pub, which can be seen in the foreground, prior to its demolition.
Crown House originally housed commercial space and a postal sorting office. Caters supermarket was added to the forecourt area soon afterwards.
Merton council transferred the majority of its departmental offices to
Crown House in 1985. The building became a fully functioning Civic Centre in 1990, following construction of a new council chamber, cafe and library extension on the former supermarket plot.
