The Royal Clarence Hotel is a Grade II listed building in the heart of Exeter. In October 2016, the building was destroyed by fire, with only the building shell remaining. We have been appointed by owners, Brownsword Hotels, to restore and rebuild the hotel, creating a building that the city can once again be proud of.
The proposals, informed by extensive consultation, will see the building's iconic frontage restored, with a new structure sitting behind it. Wherever possible, surviving features of historic and architectural importance have been incorporated into the design. This process has been informed by detailed research into the history of the building, undertaken by the practice's team of conservation architects and heritage consultants.
