with a movie of the Manchester skyline projected onto it.)
It didn't hurt that the sandbox for owner Robin Sheppard's dreamland already
had just the right mix of flash, pop-culture cred and an illustrious past. The bold
art deco fa├žade gave Redfern a hefty chunk of refined source material for his
grown-up fantasy land.
"From the bespoke skirting and architrave mouldings to bedroom and ensuite
doors-and even a feature bookcase in the reception area which echoes the upper
section of the building elevation with each book display aperture acting as a
window-the architecture was a jumping-off point for the interior design," he says.
The Edwin Luytens-designed former bank also, like so many historical buildings, challenged Redfern and his team to some super-heroic problem-solving of
their own. Even Redfern's fanboy-worthy credentials-from a childhood spent
visiting the architect's Castle Drogo (whose 1911 completion date made it the last
castle built in England) to hours logged studying him at university-didn't prevent
him from having to rethink his vision board.
The antiqued mirrored wall panels of Redfern's dream reception area had to
go-the positioning of vents and access points made installation impossible. So,
he turned to a simpler version-outlined geometric panels behind the desk-and
saved the budget and time for another area.
That space turned out to be the tin tiles on the walls of Club Brass, the hotel's
VIP Lounge. It took a "eureka!" moment on the part of the architect on the team to
find a cost-effective installation technique.
Projects like this are an object lesson for designers working on any of today's
many renovations and re-imaginings of iconic architecture. It's great to pull inspiration from the bones of the space, but it's not always possible to rely on the shell
to dress that skeleton.
