Hat-trick of ReardonSmith hotel renovations get green light in London

by Kim Megson | 12 Aug 2016

ReardonSmith Architects have received planning consent to renovate three historic London buildings as hotels.

The London studio, who specialise in hotels and resorts, last year won the Best Adaptive Re-Use Prize at the European Hotel Design Awards for their work on the city’s Beaumont Hotel near Buckingham Palace. They have also previously renovated the Georgian Lanesborough Hotel property in the capital.

Work on the three new projects, listed below, will begin imminently.

22 Grosvenor Square

ReardonSmith will be the lead architect in this conversion of a listed Edwardian office building on Grosvenor Square and an adjacent property in Lees Place into a 30-key hotel. The scheme includes a 120-cover Parisian style brasserie and a private members club and bar. According to the studio, “the vision is for an exquisite and charming high-end boutique hotel which, together with the all-day dining restaurant, will be a social and cultural hub for local residents and visitors”. The hotel will be operated by Blakes Management Ltd.

Flemings Mayfair

Flemings Mayfair is an existing hotel composed of a series of 16th century townhouses which were brought together in 1851. The hotel already features a combination of Georgian external architecture and contemporary interior design. ReardonSmith are renovating adding new decoration, furnishings and fittings “to bring the hotel up to date.” Meanwhile, the entrances to the hotel will also be revamped, with a new staircase and portico added in a style that matches the current building.

The practice will transform this 19th Century residential property within London’s Sloane Square Conservation Area into a luxury 30-bedroom hotel for developer Cadogan Estates. Actor, musician and artist Jean-Louis Costes and French interior designer François-Joseph Graf will collaborate on the project.

The hotel will enjoy a rooftop extension encompassing a fine dining restaurant, a ground-level coffee shop and, on the lower ground floor, a bar. The Edwardian facade will be retained and a copper cupola will further accentuate the building’s traditional architectural features.
