£2.5m extension agreed for Cambridge hotel
Ormerod Sutton Architects has received approval for a £2.5 million extension at Hotel Felix in Cambridge. Work is expected to start in early 2019.
Plans submitted to South Cambridgeshire District Council include 16 new bedrooms and a glass reception area which planners likened to the world-famous Barcelona Pavilion.
It was essential that the update’s contemporary design complemented the Victorian style of the original 1852 building, which had been the house of a botanist.
This horticultural legacy has been respected by Hotel Felix since the acquisition of the building in 2001, including maintaining the site’s green-belt status.
