Montagu Evans advised on the conversion of Aston Webb’s Grade I listed building to provide a luxury hotel, private members club and residence.
Our specialist heritage team worked with Prime Investors Capital and Blair Architects to develop a scheme that celebrated the architecture of this landmark building.
This was a high-profile and sensitive site that required careful consideration of a wide range of considerations, balancing the special interest of the listed building with wider land use policy, security and operational requirements.
Montagu Evans advised Prime Investors Capital from the earliest stages of the project, including input at feasibility and bid-stage following the decision on disposal by HM Government.
Working as part of a multi-disciplinary team, we provided pragmatic advice in relation to the historic building, always ensuring the emerging proposals represented the optimum viable use for the asset.
Detailed original research ensure the scheme was supported by a strong understanding of the Grade I listed building’s significance, allowing the informed restoration of parts of the building to be balanced with major intervention and new work.
