The new owners, of the iconic Burgh Island Hotel off the coast in Devon, made it clear from the outset that the hotel remained faithful to its Art Deco heritage and offered the highest-standards of hospitality.
Months of research on the history of the hotel happened long before we put pen to paper. We were 100% committed to making sure that all original features and furniture and art pieces remain in-situ. It was truly a labour of love watching this once neglected icon be brought back to life.
The major project included the refurbishment and upgrading of all the public areas and kitchens as well as extensive work in the surrounding gardens and landscapes. SKS also designed the new bedrooms (each individual) with three mock-up bedrooms already complete and the remainder planned for roll out over the next two years.
Within the public areas we focused on The Grand Ballroom which hosts the hotels formal and iconic fine dining restaurant, where wearing black tie and evening dress is a prerequisite, just as it was in the 1920’s. We also designed a complete aesthetic overhaul to the Nettelfold Restaurant, Captains Cabin, public restrooms , Peacock Bar and Palm Lounge.
