The Claremont Hotel was a fine Grade II* listed mid 19th century building, in a prominent position on the seafront close to Eastbourne Pier, which was largely destroyed by fire in November 2019.
Moxley Architects were appointed by the owners, Daish Hotels, to seek planning and Listed Building Consent from Eastbourne Borough Council (EBC) for the demolition of the unsafe remains of the building.
Discussions with EBC regarding the restoration of the property are ongoing.
Moxley Architects obtained planning and listed building consent for the total refurbishment of the Audley Hotel in 2019. Works include new lifts, lowering the basement floor slab, forming new kitchens, bar and restaurants, reconstructing the top floors, adding air conditioning and restoring the spire and dormer gables which had been destroyed by bombing in WW2. This project is now on site with Moxley Architects as Lead consultant and Principal Designers. The client is the Grosvenor Estate.
A project for The Grosvenor Estate, in the Mayfair Conservation Area, was the renovation of a Victorian property to provide one and two bedroom luxurious managed short let apartments. This ‘Aparthotel’ is part of the GoNative.com brand of serviced apartments.
Moxley Architects were appointed by Somerston Hotels, owners and operators of hotels in the Express by Holiday Inn, Ramada and Hampton hotel brands. The commission was to identify the potential for expansion within existing sites and the opportunity for new standalone hotels. The short list of sites included two in each of Cambridge, Dartford, Bath, Glasgow, Exeter, Newcastle, York, Luton, Edinburgh, Greenwich and Hammersmith. Planning approval was granted for a number of these, with the scheme for the substantial extension to the Hammersmith hotel taken through to the working drawing stage.
