EPR Architects is an award-winning practice with a well-established reputation for quality architecture, master planning and interior design thanks to its extensive experience delivering an array of building typologies across workplace, lifestyle and leisure sectors. That’s why they were the perfect fit to bring new life London’s disused Midland Bank building in 2012, transforming it into the Ned Hotel.
This Grade I listed building was originally designed by Sir Edwin ‘Ned’ Lutyens in 1939. The redevelopment and renovation transform 27–35 Poultry into a stylish venue providing contemporary hotel accommodation, restaurants, bars and extensive leisure and spa facilities.
As the lead designers in the conversion of the former Midland Bank, EPR Architects design creates a seamless transition between old and new, using the finest materials in a modern context and complementing the stunning interiors. The luxury hotel‘s accommodation consists of 252 diverse guest rooms.
The retained interiors have been sensitively restored to emphasise Lutyens’ architectural trademarks such as the stone spiral and marble staircases, original boardrooms, the walnut panelled executive offices and the impressive bank vaults, made famous in the 1964 James Bond film, Goldfinger. The three basements have been converted into luxury recreational facilities with a spa, gymnasium and swimming pool, and the extensive marble-clad banking hall on the ground floor has become the hotel’s reception and lobby with an array of restaurant and bar facilities.
