ADA Lovelace Suite, Seaham Hall Hotel

A simple idea. To convert a disused large drawing room within a Grade II Listed Building of a Boutique SPA Hotel, to create a large split level Bridal Suite.

The formation of a mezzanine floor internally to create the split level along with other minor changes have created a stunning, memorable space where anybody is welcome to enjoy.

The hotel in question is Seaham Hall in Seaham, County Durham.  Please visit their website for further details of the accommodation they can offer.  The hotel is located in beautiful grounds with the beach a short walk away.

A great use of a dis-used outbuilding to create a multi-use area.  The original stables were combined to create the large open plan area with a further garage added at the other end of the building.

The building was fully re-roofed with vaulted roof trusses to promote space and to accommodate the large velux windows to allow natural daylight and ventilation of the space.  New large folding doors were also introduced to open up the space to the outside in the summer.

The new space not only houses our office along with a small kitchen and shower room but also accommodates a comfortable seating area and small gym.

We also took the opportunity to super-insulate all elements of the build, well over and over current building regulations.  We are kept nice and warm in the Winter, comfortably cool in the Summer and we use very little electricity therefore our carbon footprint is very small.

We intend to install solar panels in the coming months which means that our office will soon be carbon neutral and eco-friendly.

Initially an unusual enquiry to convert a male and female public toilet located in the corner of a local park in Vauxhall, SW London to a Café.

Upon a closer inspection, the main structure was in a good condition and was perfect for conversion, therefore we provided proposals for a Park Café with fully equipped kitchen, toilets, inside and outside eating areas and associated landscaping.

A great example of ‘upcycling’ an existing dis-used building to create a modern property for modern day use.
