Contemporary Twist on Development of New Guest House - HPA

Contemporary Twist on Development of New Guest House

HPA have recently been working on a 9 bedroom property in Ingleton which has received planning permission to be redeveloped into a 6 room family guest house.

The client’s plan for this redeveloped property, designed by HPA, is to create a 5 star Airbnb, suitable as a family holiday home. The property has been redesigned for three generation families, with generously sized living and kitchen spaces, accommodating 12 people.

HPA’s design process for this project has been guided by a fusion of contemporary and traditional design that complement one another. The result being a scheme that combines Victorian period details with more minimalist material elements featuring a range of sophisticated colour tones.

A key focus for this project has been the reinstatement of the properties’ period features and historic details. This includes the restoration of the ceiling roses and dado rail, elevating the history of this property. Alongside the grand period features, traditional materials will be used with modern detailing to reflect its new status as a contemporary holiday destination. The client has a keen eye for detail so HPA have assisted in the design process by providing a 3D model of the interior alongside proposed finishes. This has allowed the client to gain a real understanding of the finishes  selected prior to any start of works and test design ideas with the team.

HPA are also managing the project build with the owner assisting in them with the construction process. HPA have also been guiding the owner on retrofitting the property and thermal improvements that take into account its significance and building structure.

Construction onsite is expected to start soon and to be completed within a year.
