Jury’s Hotel, Great Russell Street, London


Conversion of a six-storey building, designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens in late 1920’s to a five-star hotel. This building was protected by English Heritage and all structural work had to be integrated sympathetically with existing finishes. Close liaison with statutory agencies was required to achieve contemporary hotel standards while conserving an important historic/listed building.

The project involved internal remodelling of the structure, the addition of space within the roof and the provision of glazed roof lights over internal courtyards.

The project necessitated a very detailed survey of the existing building and assessment of load paths and strengths of various elements. Internal brickwork was removed in favour of lightweight partitions and with the saving in loading, two additional ‘set back’ storeys were added.

This project required day-to-day involvement by both the project partner and associate. A follow-up contract converted the basement swimming pool area into a business centre.
