An extremely successful and sensitive reuse of a complex site, retaining the character of Lutyens’ grade I listed Midland Bank. Structural and services interventions were carried out in an extraordinarily unobtrusive manner. Exceptional attention to detail ensured the building settled seamlessly into its new role as a hotel. Inventive reuse of the banking vaults, meeting/dining rooms and the rooftop impressed the most. Many original materials have been retained or reused.
