As Project Architects, we were responsible for the complete refurbishment and restoration of this Grade II listed building. Our role included the implementation of an opulent interior design, the re-planning and design of the back of house areas and the sensitive restoration of the listed frontage, dome and 7-storey grand Pavonazzo marble staircase.
Previously the Chancery Court Hotel, the interiors were completely remodelled to create extensive new entertainment and leisure facilities that include the Sense® spa, a fitness suite and 11 events spaces including the Grand Ballroom and 3 heritage boardrooms. The Rosewood offers diverse dining options including a private dining room with show kitchen, the Mirror Room, Scarfes Bar, a lobby lounge, Holborn Delicatessen and the Holborn Dining Room leading out onto a secluded terrace in the hotel’s inner courtyard.
Amongst the hotel’s 262 guest rooms and 44 suites, is the Grand Manor House Wing — the most lavish of the suites, accessed via a private lift from its own entrance, and notably one of the few suites in the world with its own postcode. It covers 587m2 of living space with six bedrooms, a dressing chamber, library, private dining room and several sitting rooms. We worked in collaboration with interior designers Tony Chi and Martin Brudnizki, implementing their grand designs to create a luxurious hotel with a timeless sense of place and style.
