As Lead Designer in the conversion of the former Midland Bank, our design will create a seamless transition between old and new, using the finest materials in a modern context and complimenting the stunning interiors.
The hotel accommodation will consist of 252 diverse guest rooms. The retained interiors will be sensitively restored to emphasise Lutyens architectural trademarks such as the stone spiral and marble staircases, original boardrooms, the walnut panelled executive offices and the impressive bank vaults, made famous in the 1964 James Bond film, Goldfinger. The three basements will be converted into luxury recreational facilities with a spa, gymnasium and swimming pool, and the extensive marble clad banking hall on the ground floor will become the hotel’s reception and lobby with extensive restaurant and bar facilities.
