In 1938, the Nicholas family, of Nicholas Chemical Manufacturing Company fortune, funded the construction of Nicholas Hall for The Wesley Church. The building was designed by Harry Norris, the official architect of the Nicholas group of companies in a Moderne style, but within its generally streamlined appearance, there are elements of Gothic Revival style. Following its completion in 1939, Nicholas Hall was sited and designed as an infill building with various uses such as a church meeting place, cinema, church hall, and office.

The southern wall of Nicholas Hall, which is of primary heritage significance and has an unusual presentation, is the surviving north wall of the 1888 Conference Hall pictured here. That building was demolished in 1970 (with its North wall retained as the South wall of the 1930s Nicholas Hall) and replaced by a multi-story office building known as Wesley House. The recent demolition of Wesley House revealed the original internal face of the former Conference Hall’s north wall, resulting in an unexpected discovery as part of the Wesley Place project and now provides Nicholas Hall a unique and characterful appearance to Lonsdale Street.

The arbor structure facing Lonsdale Street, which will be erected as part of the landscaping works, references the design of the Conference Hall.
