The largest project at The Savoy in almost one hundred years.

Lees Associates oversaw the largest project in almost one hundred years at the Savoy Hotel, an extension which added 88 new bedrooms and bathrooms to this historic building.

In acting as consultants on the restoration of The Savoy front hall, Lees Associates handled the architectural renovations with the perception of specialists, finding sensitive solutions which harmonised traditional features with the highest of today’s facilities. Such a project is always complex and Lees successfully managed the programme on a strict deadline with minimum of disruption to our guests.

The new exterior was clad in hand-finished glazed ceramic tiles, which were manufactured to obtain a match for the patina and range of hues of the original glazed bricks.

The bathrooms were finished using hand-selected book- matched marble and mahogany panelling, complete with chrome fittings and accessories.

Lees Associates worked in conjunction with English Heritage and Westminster Planning Department to develop concepts which ensured the retention of much of the earlier 1930s Art Deco styling so prevalent in the hotel.
