Hamiltons Architects behind 'opulent' new home in Kensington

The AJ can reveal that Hamiltons Architects are the brains behind the headline-grabbing plans by a city tycoon to convert a former four-star hotel in Kensington into an 'opulent' new home.

The £20 million scheme, which has been plastered across the pages of the national press this morning, will see the conversion of a rundown hotel in Pembridge Square, west London, into a luxurious eight-bedroom house completed with cinema, climbing wall and open-air pool on the third floor.

There are also plans for a subterranean swimming pool - with high-diving board - in a new four-storey basement which will be hollowed out below the Grade-II block.

Reported as 'the biggest planning application ever received by Kensington and Chelsea Council', the revamp has been designed for secretive 36 year-old multi-millionaire Chris Rokos.

A decision on the application, allegedly 168-pages long, is expected by the end of August.
