Restoration of Braemar’s Fife Arms Hotel gets underway
March 8 2016
Moxon Architects have worked with interior designer Russell Sage and construction manager GLM on the proposal which will see current spaces remodelled together with modest contemporary interventions.
Victorian features will be retained and enhanced for the project alongside the demolition of a 20th century extension that will be replaced by ‘sympathetic structures’ to complement the main hotel.
A new central courtyard will be built at the heart of the scheme with stripped bark tree trunk columns supporting a planted heather roof. Elsewhere locally salvaged granite will be used together with untreated timber cladding.
Edward Workman, CEO of HHL said: “The much needed renovations will start immediately and we have confidence that the transformation of this beautiful and historic hotel will bring huge benefit and opportunity to the local community, attract visitors from all over the world, and safeguard the Grade-B listed building for future generations.”
The revamped hotel is scheduled to re-open early in 2018.
