Mowbray Court Hotel
Design: Stamos Yeoh Architects
Location: Earls Court, West London, UK
The Mowbray Court Hotel comprises three interconnecting and adjoining Victorian town houses within Earls Court Conservation Area in London, with a fourth separate annex accommodating 138 bedrooms in total.
The buildings were fully integrated, refurbished and extended to provide a unique interior marrying traditional features with a modern material pallet
The main reception foyer is a triple-terraced width space which 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. This space required significant structural interventions which became a visible feature within the lobby.
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 a guest’s bedroom experience.
The brief was to create a welcoming reception space which integrated open shelving and a relaxing comfortable environment for guests and visitors.
The key challenges were to offer a comfortable open-plan reception lobby whilst being restricted within three narrow terrace buildings – the solution was to punch holes within existing load-bearing walls.
The solutions were to work with various consultants including the structural engineer and services engineer to overcome the challenges, for example discretely integrating air conditioning supply & extract within the ceiling.
The reception space offers a unique ceiling integrating walnut louvred boards which also is used as a tool to house services plant, and integrating this with a subtle flowing angled plastered suspended ceiling. The ceiling panels were carefully detailed to flow down to integrate with the wall shelving.
