Native Architects has been commissioned to modernise and reorder the old Palm Court Hotel in the centre of York. The brief was to give the period property a fresh look and make it more comfortable, quieter and attractive for guests while using the latest methods, materials, combined with traditional craftsmanship to make the exterior of the building more aesthetically pleasing.
The building has many original period features, but they were unsympathetically presented. To improve this Native has refigured the layout of all the bedrooms and opened up the rear dormers on the top floor which now have wonderful views of York Minster.
The first photograph below features our Part 1 student Sean and shows the new lead guttering and roof light in place.
The leadwork to the guttering and bay window tops was carried out by Martin & Keith, Leeds Leadworkers, Leeds
The second photograph shows the finished standing seam natural quartz zinc dormer windows with amazing views looking out at York Minster.
The third photograph is of the first-floor sash windows which are a more sympathetic design and are very energy efficient as well as significantly reduce traffic noise.
The main contractors are Croft Farm Enterprises
