Two buildings will provide a 95 bedroom hotel and office space for Surrey County Cricket Club. Ideally located for their development plans, the site is adjacent to the historic Kia Oval cricket ground.
The hotel is a new building to replace the Ovalhouse Theatre. The site became available, following the relocation of the theatre to a fully accessible modern facility in Somerleyton Road in the heart of Brixton. The design team’s approach was to consider local vistas and context, particularly in relation to nearby buildings. The contemporary treatment of the elevations feature ‘London Stock’ brickwork which are teamed with Portland Reconstituted Stone and bronze metal details.
Also on the site is office accommodation which will be provided in the White House, a Grade II listed Victorian building. Well known locally, it is a landmark on the boundary of the Lambeth St Mark’s Conservation Area. The White House was famously the birthplace of Field Marshal Bernard Law Montgomery who was known as ‘Monty’. A full refurbishment and modest extension will preserve the buildings features with the exterior remaining largely unchanged.
