Hellaby Hall Country House, Rotherham
Hellaby Hall is a small, Grade II* listed country house from the late seventeenth century, which occupies a dominant place in the local landscape. It had experienced extensive fire damage before being purchased by Whiteley Geddes Developments. Proposals were made to repair and extend the hall to create a 52-bedroom luxury hotel.
Close liaison took place with Rotherham Borough Council and English Heritage to ensure that the historic elements of the building were respected. Of particular interest was the main facade of ashlar stone with sash windows, which were thought to be the earliest examples of this type of window in South Yorkshire.
- Interior Design
The style of the facade is also unusual - some elements relate to the architecture of The Low Countries in north-western Europe. In the public rooms and bedrooms, particular attention was paid to recreating the fine joinery and plasterwork destroyed by the fire.
Hellaby Hall Hotel was a design and build project with Hall & Tawse (now operating as Mansell) as the main contractor. The £4.5m project was a ‘turnkey’ operation, with all elements being covered by the contract from structure and design, to cutlery and table linen. Our team provided the full design service of architecture, interior design and landscape design.
