Essential to the project was the process of unlocking the potential of existing spaces, for the new and enhanced facilities. Creative design solutions were sought at every opportunity to optimise the experience for members and users of the reordered facilities.
The relevelling of floors to the rear and the reordering of spaces, both within the club and an adjoining property, has helped accommodate new function rooms, bedrooms and offices.
Work included improvements to access and circulation encompassing the provision of disabled access to all floors, improvements to the existing library, billiard room and function rooms together with the creation of new private dining, bedroom and support facilities.
