Studio Moren tells Londoners’ stories in boutique hotel
Studio Moren has received planning consent for’ 4-6 Bedford Place, a Grade II-listed Bloomsbury hotel. The building will be updated to a 43-room luxury, boutique townhouse hotel.
The team is working with investor and developer SAV Group to create a high-end property which uses its historic and architectural character to create unique and luxurious guest experiences.
The hotel property is currently a collection of three Georgian converted terraced houses, in a state of some dilapidation, located between Russell Square and Bloomsbury Square Gardens. The hotel will comprise a compact reception space, bar and lounge alongside a variety of standard, suite and accessible guestrooms.
Studio Moren is both Architect and Interior Designer on the project, drawing on its skill for storytelling to inform the design. Studio Moren will retain, restore and conserve the Grade II listed building, adding three modest closet wings to its rear to extend the accommodation. Studio Moren used the stories of the households living in the property in 1911 as the foundation for the design, with decor paying homage to the former residents, allowing the building to tell the memories within it.
