RHWL's St Pancras hotel revamp completes

[First look] RHWL and Richard Griffiths Architects have completed the £150 million overhaul and extension of George Gilbert Scott’s former Midland Grand Hotel at St Pancras, London

The 29,399m² St Pancras Chambers scheme for the Manhattan Loft Corporation houses a new hotel as well as private apartments.

The main entrance to the hotel will be via the western arch into the old taxi road, with the flats having aseparate entrance from the forecourt.

The major public rooms have been adapted for use as restaurants, bars and hotel suites and the Grand Staircase has been restored ‘to its former glory’, becoming the central focus of the hotel.

The new wing of the hotel next to the main block will provide the majority of the guestrooms. According to RHWL, the wing has been designed ‘to an appropriate aesthetic, using sensitively chosen materials that will work well with the older building.
