Burleigh Gardens Hotel

Written by Joe Dickeson Regional Director and Board Director

Jefferson Sheard Architects have submitted a planning application to Enfield Borough Council for the refurbishment and remodelling of a former educational facility to provide new Hotel Accommodation comprising of 66 rooms.

The site is situated in Southgate, North London, moments walk from the Grade II listed 1930’s Southgate Underground Station. The proposals seek to revitalise a vacant and unattractive post-war building, which borders the Southgate Circus Conservation Area, bringing it back into a commercial use.

As a starting point for approaching the re-cladding and reconfiguration of the external facade of the existing building, our intention was to establish and analyse the language of other surrounding buildings within the conservation area. From this we were able to identify principles for design which have been interpreted in a contemporary manner to better the contribution of the building toward the street scene and wider area as a considered, quality piece of architecture. To encourage further interest and to echo the vertical window grouping of windows in neighbouring buildings, the proposal introduces protruded window reveals to the front facade. Extending from the head of windows at third floor down to ground level, the reveals will create subtle depth and shadow to what was otherwise a very flat and featureless face.
