The Old Bank Hotel, Oxford

The Old Bank Hotel was formed from the amalgamation and conversion of 16th and 17th century listed buildings into a contemporary 44 bedroom hotel. Located on Oxford’s historic High Street, the original buildings of varying floor-to-ceiling heights, room sizes and circulation patterns had to be rationalised and integrated into one cohesive building. The first to fourth floors were converted into bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, while the ground floor became a 160 seat restaurant. The listed status of the buildings and the central location meant that the project was subject to complex planning requirements. Careful dialogue with both the local conservation officers and English Heritage continued throughout the project.
