Mowbray Court Hotel
Kensington & Chelsea, London
The Mowbray Court Hotel comprises three interconnecting and adjoining Victorian townhouses, with a fourth separate annex accommodating 138 bedrooms in Earls Court, London. The buildings were integrated, refurbished and extended at basement level.
As well as rear and roof extensions, the building features a unique rear two-storey basement extension which overcame a three-tier problem of remaining largely invisible from the garden, maintaining adequate basement daylight and being able to drain away rainwater, all without affecting the guest bedroom experience.
The main reception foyer is an integrated three-terraced width space that involved breaking through the original party walls to create a welcoming and fresh fit-out marrying a heavily walnut louvred ceiling with traditional Victorian features.
