We were successful amongst several companies asked to provide designs for a new kitchen for Holbrook House Hotel in Wincanton following a very serious fire which completely devastated the original one. The historic building dates back to Georgian times so a sympathetic approach was essential, and we were recommended because of our previous work within listed buildings.
We worked closely with the hotel’s owners, builders, service providers and insurers to advise on the best way forward in reinstating a working kitchen. Despite the sensitive nature of the project, speed was of the essence as, without a kitchen, the hotel was unable to function.
Because there was absolutely nothing of the original kitchen left, we were effectively starting with a blank canvas so we took the opportunity to focus on future requirements rather than attempting to recreate what had been there before.
