This Grade II Listed building and former George and Dragon pub had stood empty for 21 years and was falling into a state of serious disrepair and had become a local eyesore. The project was to sensitively restore the building and create two apartments above the pub.
#561 Asquith House
Conversion of existing Grade II listed building into 9 apartments
The project was to transform a dilapidated former technical college building of local importance on the edge of Coventry city centre into a 100 bedroom hotel for Premier Inn as part of the MCD Developments regeneration of the Earlsdon area within only an 11 month programme. This was achieved by close collaboration with the main contractor, sub contractors and consultant team.
#46 Mulberry's Hair & Beauty Salon
Georgian Building Refurb, Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire
The scheme is housed in an impressive Georgian building set within the old town part of Beaconsfield. The building retains numerous original features such as an impressive exposed roof structure, cornices, skirtings etc. which the design respects and respond to. The grounds are also impressive and boast an open air swimming pool. The brief was to design a contemporary, luxurious salon with a 'club lounge' aesthetic, which houses functions such as a hair salon, lounge, beauty treatments, and a juice bar.
This prestigious project is set on the ground floor of Birmingham's contemporary art gallery, Ikon Gallery and has become a stalwart for the city's discerning restaurant frequenters and was called "a modern masterpiece" by Birmingham's "What's On" magazine.
