Conversion of listed Royal Court
London, UK  
Bow Street  
This central London hotel refurbishment scheme presents a building that includes a court room, a police station as well as an extension. The role taken here was to create a sculpted object at the back of the interior courtyard which would bring about a dialogue with the main judiciary building as well as giving a new facade to the rear. The project first reinterprets the existing features of the building, along with its ornamental details to create a new language of decor. The old tribunal hall is converted into the reception where the aligned police cells are integrated as a footpath all in favour of providing a modern context and adding a new dimension to the interior courtyard.
