Scheme name: St. Pancras Chambers

Practice: RHWL Architects and Richard Griffiths Architects

Client: Manhattan Loft Corporation

Photographer: Hufton + Crow

In effect, this scheme completes the campaigning work led by Sir John Betjeman and Nicholas Pevsner that saved Sir George Gilbert Scott’s building from demolition in the 1960s and marked a watershed in the history of conservation.

In its adapted form the internal spaces make perfect sense. The architects internalised the original carriage drop-off to create the hotel reception and a function room. English Heritage insisted that the integration of en-suite bathrooms should not be detrimental so they form diminutive structures within the original room interiors.
