Holborn Hotel, London
Eric Parry Architects was commissioned to review the previous 2013 planning application and propose a scheme that would address the concerns voiced by The City of London Planning Department, the GLA and Historic England.
The new scheme proposes the demolition of the existing office building and replace it with a 185 - 200 room 4* hotel. The proposed scheme consists of two wings; a ground plus 9 storey glazed wing to Plumtree Court, and a ground plus 7 storey stone and glazed wing to Holborn Viaduct. The two wings are linked with a central atrium/winter garden.
The two entrances are on Holborn Viaduct and Plumtree Court and are linked by a triple height atrium serving front of house areas, including a restaurant and bar, spa and conference facilities. A basement houses the majority of plant with services and loading off Plumtree Court. The proposed scheme is targeted BREEAM excellent.
