Stanhill Court Hotel – Charlwood, Surrey
Stanhill Court Hotel is a country house hotel set in 35 acres. Built in 1881, the manor house was designed in a Scottish baronial style and extended in 2012. Working in collaboration with another architect our role is to create an enhanced identity for the whole site that preserves the building’s historic uniqueness, yet embraces a contemporary aspect to sustain its future success as a hotel.
The first phase of masterplan involves the refurbishment of the Victorian building to meet client expectations and the creation of new guest rooms on the second floor. Additionally, we are making the roof space habitable to accommodate additional hotel rooms. The works are phased to allow the hotel to remain operational.
Subsequently, we are designing a new single-storey restaurant building to replace the hotel’s small dining room and restaurant used for functions, which is inadequate in terms of its spatial arrangements, comfort and thermal efficiency. The new restaurant will serve the refurbished hotel and will have separate access to operate independently from the hotel. A traditional brick built structure with a tiled roof and central glazed lantern will reflect the style, materials and detailing of the Victorian building.
Our design work will respect and complement the essence of the parkland setting.
