Shire Hall is the conversion and redevelopment of the Grade 2 listed Old Shire Hall in Durham into a luxury branded Hotel. HL was appointed as Architects, Interiors Designers and CDM PD for the project.
The building was originally the council chambers for Durham and later the administrations offices for Durham University. The building has been empty for several years until sold to a local developer.
The IHG hotel is due to open in March 2018 and offers luxury accommodation through 83 bedrooms and the conversion of the old council chamber into a Marco Pierre White restaurant.
The unique characteristics and victorian details have been retained alongside more contemporary interior features to create a stunning and beautiful building restoration
