Conservation Award runner-up - William Kent House
William Kent House - The Ritz Hotel, London
Architect: Ettwein Bridges
Client: Ellerman Investments
Contract value: £4M
Photography by: James Mortimer
Designed by Kent during 1743-54, it is listed Grade II* like The Ritz. The brief was to seamlessly add its fine eighteenth century rooms as function suites for the hotel. Connections are through a light well once filled with plant and to the second floor hotel bedroom corridor.
