Former council offices have become a hip hotel with a striking new ‘crown’ of accommodation. The ‘refurbishment first’ principle re-uses 94% of the original structure, providing 266 rooms plus public facing spaces at ground/10th floors. In a conservation area, it adjoins the listed Town Hall and faces the grade I listed St Pancras and King’s Cross stations. The three new steel-framed floors took careful planning and structural consideration. A pedestrian/cyclist route was reinstated through the garden.
