The Ned

City of London

This Grade I listed building was originally designed by Sir Edwin ‘Ned’ Lutyens in 1939. The redevelopment and renovation transforms 27–35 Poultry into a stylish venue providing contemporary hotel accommodation, restaurants, bars and extensive leisure and spa facilities.

As lead designer in the conversion of the former Midland Bank, our design creates a seamless transition between old and new, using the finest materials in a modern context and complementing the stunning interiors. The hotel accommodation consists of 252 diverse guest rooms. 

The retained interiors have been 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 have been converted into luxury recreational facilities with a spa, gymnasium and swimming pool, and the extensive marble clad banking hall on the ground floor has become the hotel’s reception and lobby with an array of restaurant and bar facilities.
