Chester building by British architect gets green-lit for suites

Plans lodged by Warm Hearth Ltd have given the okay, enabling the firm to transform the top floors of the Chester Brewhouse and Kitchen into a hotel space.

The pub on Love Street could now potentially house 17 suites with the new consent, that was first submitted in August 2018.

The core of the grade II Listed building was constructed during the Georgian period and designed by British architect Sir Robert Taylor. A prominent architect during the era, Taylor designed the extension for the Old Palace along with the Bank of England.

The property that houses the pub was built in 1759 and is known as one of the biggest townhouses of Chester, built in the Georgian style. Parts of the structure’s design are deemed to be of “very high significance” and taken into consideration in the report issued by the council of Cheshire West and Chester.

Examples of Taylor’s signature include cross vaulting and uncommonly shaped rooms such as octagonal or aspe-ended (D- shape). This design ideal is in contrast to the rectangular and square rooms more often found at the time.

From the outside of the building there will be little notable change, save for extending an outdoor terrace for customers.

A supporting document to the report states:

“The applicant wishes to expand their business by making better use of underutilised space for the purpose of providing hotel accommodation.”
