Purcell refurbished and developed the signature Glasshouse Restaurant and Bar at the Grade II* Listed Grove Hotel, a 5-star retreat in Hertfordshire.
In addition to glowing reviews and an uplift in use, The Glasshouse Restaurant and Bar has won an International Hotel Award 2020 for the Restaurant Within an Existing Hotel category. The award commends design and offers inspiration across the hospitality industry.
This included the installation of 8 kitchen theatre stations, including “The Crustacean Station”, “The Robata Grill” and “The Carving Station."
Purcell also designed The Glasshouse's extension, a bronzed-metal, glazed triple-height space, replete with kinetic sculptures which has created an inspirational environment in which the hotel’s guests can dine in style.
As our team has a vast experience in prefabrication and offsite fabrication, the project was delivered in four months and The Grove remained open, operating as usual throughout.
Purcell’s transformation has created a contemporary jewel which has significantly increased the hotel’s offer, maximising its assets whilst safeguarding the building’s heritage and original design.
