Client: von Essen Group
Project value: £3million
Completion date: 2010
This £3m 2009/10 project at Congham Hall is our second major project for the luxury hotel group von Essen. Congham Hall is a country house hotel in Norfolk and our brief was to improve the existing hotel facilities, provide 10 additional bedrooms, a purpose built new luxury spa additional and additional catering space; within the Sandringham Estate.
The original Georgian Manor House remains with many of its original architectural features. The main building is complemented by a number of vernacular buildings and the surroundings consist of thirty acres of parkland, an orchard and a renowned herb garden stocked with over 700 varieties of herbs, which generates additional visitors to the hotel.
Our design, construction of which was completed in December 2010, allows for both refurbishment and extension to the original hotel, together with a subtly integrated contemporary spa.
Our landscape design team created external guest spaces linked to a theme of the historic herb garden, and some of the guest suites have their own private garden.
