We are delighted to welcome the architects and interior designers, Dexter Moren Associates to our round table this week on hotel design and UK tourism.
Based in London, the firm has built a world renowned reputation in the hotel sector over the last 25 years. It is responsible as architect and Lead Designer for the look of The Curtain Hotel in Shoreditch - the Elizabethan playhouse of the same name was sited originally nearby and DMA also referenced the local industrial heritage in the façade design. The roof top pool and bar is described by the firm as a nod towards the contemporary creative character of the area.
The architect firm has also designed a new skybar to complete Dorsett City London hotel, sited beside the Grade 1 listed church of St Botolph without Aldgate. DMA re-planned the hotel's interior layout and the new roofbar - Jin Bo Law - providing views of the capital's iconic buildings.
Paul Wells is currently leading the delivery of two new build hotels in Central London, New Marlborough Yard and Black Lion House, as well as a boutique hotel in Cambridge.
Paul has previously worked in the conservation and ecclesiastical field during his time at Martin Stancliffe Architects in York.
Historic England is hosting the Future Cities Forum round table on 6 July to discuss sustainable tourism and the protection of heritage, with Head of Planning Ian Morrison contributing, Medway Council's Director of Sport, Leisure, Tourism and Heritage, Bob Dimond, and Andrew Croft of Chris Blandford Associates.
