A former 1930’s police section house in Greenwich has been converted into a luxury boutique hotel. Maurice Drummond House was originally built in the 1930s as accommodation for officers from the Metropolitan Police and has recently opened as the Mercure London Greenwich, part of the famous Mercure hotel brand.
The hotel offers affordable luxury over nine floors with 145 spacious bedrooms, a stylish basement restaurant and ground floor bar. Original Terrazzo floors have been carefully restored, timber paneling has been incorporated and elegant chandeliers installed. The colour palette is a simple black, grey, white and cream with fabric wall panels.
Ahmarra Door Solutions were selected to supply doorsets to the bedrooms and corridors. The doors were FD30 and FD60 fire rated and supplied in FSC American White Oak stained to give a Wenge veneer effect. Ahmarra also manufactured the hotel’s stunning high gloss, black panelled entrance doors which feature an ornate circle design with bronze door ring knockers.
Principal contractor Rees Mellish Ltd and architects Assael Architecture carried out the £7.5m project for Periquin Limited, the sole director of which is Lady Rona Delves Broughton.
“Ahmarra have worked on a number of projects for luxury London hotels and we aim to offer a premium product at a price to fit the strict budget controls ”
said Tim Doran, Managing Director of Ahmarra.
Ahmarra’s reputation for quality continues to grow with each contract and their portfolio includes such famous hotel brands as Intercontinental, Grange, Apex, Hempel, Hilton, Metropolitan and Four Seasons.
