Archer Humphryes Architects have been appointed to lead the concept design for the conversion of the former grammar school into a 70 key luxury hotel for the Lalit Suri Hospitality Group.

The Grade II – Listed property, originally designed by architect Edward Mountford, was built in two phases in the 1800s and became known as St. Olave’s Grammar School. More recently, it housed Lambeth College.Situated close to London’s evolving South Bank, the heritage building is being developed by Grand Hotel and Investments Group to provide boutique hotel accommodation, a restaurant, several bars and a spa.

It will be the first Lalit hotel in London. Headquartered in New Delhi, the lalit Suri Hospitality Group is India’s largest privately owned hotelier with 17 luxury hotels across the country.

The Lalit will offer incredible guestrooms, including the former headmasters office, set to be transformed into a luxury suite. The former Great Hall will become the restaurant, even space and heart of the hotel. Whilst the Governors Room with intact wall panelling will become a sumptuous cocktail bar with an inlaid mother of pearl ceiling redolent of palaces in India. The spa complex will be cocooned in lavish tranquillity along with a state of the art gym.

Inspiration for the project was to intertwine the Edwardian masterpiece with Anglo- Indian majesty in the heart of London whose address is No.1 Tower Bridge.
