A project for The Grosvenor Estate, in the Mayfair Conservation Area, was the renovation of a Victorian property to provide one and two bedroom luxurious managed short let apartments. This ‘Aparthotel’ is part of the GoNative.com brand of serviced apartments.
Moxley Architects was appointed by Somerston Hotels, owners and operators of hotels in the Express by Holiday Inn, Ramada and Hampton hotel brands, to identify the potential for expansion within existing sites and the opportunity for new standalone hotels. The short list of sites included two in each of Cambridge, Dartford and Bath, Glasgow, Exeter, Newcastle, York, Luton, Edinburgh, Greenwich and Hammersmith. Planning approval was granted for number of these, with the scheme for the substantial extension to the Hammersmith hotel taken through to working drawing stage.
