Chiltern Firehouse

High-End Luxury Hotel in Grade II Listed Firehouse

A boutique 5 star hotel with modern services, aesthetic accessories, and bespoke fittings throughout.

We worked to create a luxury oasis within the historic Manchester Square Fire Station to create one of London’s most prestigious boutique hotels, with 26 high end bedrooms, a Michelin star restaurant, and multiple bars and VIP areas, all whilst preserving the celebrated original elements that make the building so iconic.

During the early phases of the project we commenced our pre-construction phase early to provide key design assistance. Multiple light fittings were designed specifically for the hotel, we co-ordinated with artists and designers to manufacture their works.

Our in house extra low voltage specialists designed and installed a custom Lutron system to control the lights throughout the building.

We are reliant on East West Connect’s professionalism, quality, technical skills and enthusiasm to deliver a great project.

We are looking forward to working with them again, and strengthening our relationship even further. Their management team provide a skilled approach with a friendly and informal manner.

Elegant co-ordination to suit decorative elements.

Our project management team had a key role during the design phase of the project, ensuring the the multitude of services were co-ordinated behind decorative joinery installations and within unforgivingly tight ceiling voids.

To assist the hotel, we kept our project team on call during the opening weeks in a soft landings function to help train the hotel’s facilities management staff on their new systems.

Our engineers captured the client’s requirements perfectly when creating the new installation. The cosy and homely environment that the Chiltern Firehouse is famous for is embellished by our services design, with dimmed lighting and heritage aesthetics.

We worked closely with our trusted supply chain to ensure that the bespoke and reclaimed fittings used throughout the hotel would arrive on programme, preventing delays on site.

The fire station was constructed in 1889 and we planned our management of the design and installation process respecting the historic, listed elements of the building.

Our staff used their key understanding of the requirements of working within listed environments to ensure that progress of the works could continue throughout the approvals and sign off process.
