Woods Bagot wins Moscow hotel job

  • Comment

Woods Bagot has been appointed to revamp the Peking Hotel in Moscow, Russia

The project for operator Fairmont Hotels and Resorts restores and extends the historic city centre building which was completed in 1955 by Soviet architect Dimity Chechulin.

Woods Bagot principal Rob Steul said: ‘The Pekin Hotel in Moscow is recognised as one of Russia’s most important historical and cultural buildings, having been designed in the “Stalinist” style of the post war years and honouring the friendship between the Soviet Union and China in the early 1950s.

‘This project will draw upon Woods Bagot’s extensive experience of hotel design and our proposals will capture this building’s former grandeur while meeting the challenges of providing world-class facilities for operator Fairmont.

‘Interesting features for the renewed hotel will be a bar located in the ‘Belvedere’ tower offering views over central Moscow, a large spa, new lobby and porte cochere, and a wintergarden featuring multiple food and beverage offers.

‘In essence, we wish to return The Fairmont Pekin Moscow Hotel to a key destination in one of the World’s largest and famous cities.’

The completed project will feature 236 bedrooms alongside 950m² of meeting and function space. The project is expected to start on site in December 2013.
