In 2004, we were appointed by a private client to carry out an extensive refurbishment of this early nineteenth century building fronting Hyde Park. The project is multi-phased and on-going as it involves the full refurbishment of a 7-storey block for residential use. Part of the building operated as a bank in the past and has therefore required a substantial conversion for its adaption to current use. Our work has, as a result, ranged from partial demolition to remodelling and conservation of existing elements. Much of our brief was based on the need to modernise the building without compromising its original character. The public rooms were renovated carefully and where restoration of original elements was impossible we worked with Clough Harris, Westway Services and Cole joinery as well as a number of artisans to reconstruct the Regency period features and details.
