The Langley, a Luxury Collection Hotel

The Langley, a Luxury Collection Hotel, is a Grade II listed mansion which dates back to 1755. The former home of the third Duke of Marlborough, located in Buckinghamshire, U.K., had sat derelict and in a state of ruin for many years.

HDR was honoured to be involved in restoring the building and refurbishing it to the high specification, 5-star boutique hotel that it is today. The project involved the conversion of the existing Mansion and Clock Tower to house 45 bedrooms and suites as well as an extensive subterranean excavation covering 1,600 square metres. This new build area of the project, which links to the existing building, was built to include a large spa area, with treatment rooms and facilities, as well as indoor and outdoor pools. All of which were designed to the highest specification, to cater to hotel guests and their expectations of this high-end hotel.

Working on a listed building allowed us to think creatively when adding modern services and technologies into a building not originally intended to cater for them. Our team dedicated themselves to including pipes and ducts, as well as modern ventilation cooling systems, efficiently and discreetly. This was to keep in line with the traditional English Heritage architecture. This work included amenities such as the lounge, bar and restaurant areas as well as the hotel lobby.

The Langley a Luxury Collection Hotel sits within 150 acres of historic gardens and parklands designed by Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown, renowned for his Landscape Architecture in the 18th Century. The design and lighting of the exterior has been sensitive to their historic surroundings, to respect the work of ‘England’s Greatest Gardener’.
