Scope of Project:
Redevelopment of existing fire station into a luxury 26 bedroom hotel

Situated in the heart of Marylebone, David Archer Architects worked in partnership with André Balazs to convert the Grade II Listed Fire Station at No. 1 Chiltern Street into a 26-bedroom boutique hotel.

The redevelopment scheme is part of the Manhattan Loft Corporation’s vision to create a unique luxury in the centre of Marylebone.

The works of the project involved the removal of the steel practice tower and partial demolition of the rear of the original building, along with refurbishment of existing elevations.

Portland stone was specified for the stonework of the existing Listed building.

Albion Stone supplied approximately 23m³ of Jordans Basebed for the project in the form of detailed gothic-style plinths, window surrounds and copings.
