Studio Moren were appointed by contractor McLaren to help deliver the design for this luxury boutique hotel scheme. The 40-room hotel opened in 2018.
Our team were involved for the duration of the 18-month build; working out of an office opposite the site we were able to solve issues as they arose.
The site was previously home to the headquarters of the Baptist Union. It comprises two buildings, both listed, including an octagonally shaped chapel to the rear.
We had to make the scheme work within the listing restrictions and resolve various issues with the original design, from resetting floor levels to ensuring building regulation compliance. As well as the internal reconfiguration, the scheme provided for a new roof extension. A striking bar and grill are housed in the original chapel.
Working to a concept by Paris-based interior designer Jacques Garcia we created much of the interior detailing including restoration and replacement in parts.
