The scheme is centred around Cambridge House; the former residence of Henry John Temple, 3rd Viscount Palmerston whilst he served as Prime Minister. The building was built in 1764 and was originally known as Egremont House. It is a rare example of an ‘Hôtel Particulier’; a formal architectural set-piece arrangement typical of 17th century French design, where the house is set back from the street and is fronted by a private courtyard.
The scheme proposes a new signature chef restaurant and hotel bar, both accessible to the public from Piccadilly, a spa with pool, cellar wine bar, classically finished lounges, meeting rooms and grand ballroom.
In addition to the retained buildings, the scheme features an equal quantity of new build construction that will enable guests and residents to benefit from an exceptional degree of amenity. Guest rooms are exceptionally large throughout and the scale of the grandest suites, with their ornate 5.4m high ceilings, are truly of a different age.
Having remained vacant and neglected for almost 20 years, one of London’s iconic buildings is finally embarking on the road to its resurrection.
Detailed design and enabling works will begin in 2018.
