Turnberry Hotel

Peter Drummond Architect

The Practice is provided heritage management advice to Dubai's Leisurecorp on their proposals for a comprehensive repair, upgrade, and extension to James Miller's iconic listed hotel. After many years of underinvestment and insensitive alterations, the proposals envisage the restoration and recreation of the principle public spaces together with careful repair of the famous front facade. We worked with lead designers 3D Reid to negotiate consents in a very short timescale and deliver a high quality solution which balanced the heritage and the need to provide a working world-class hotel. Our work included historic research, investigation of the original design and finishes, development of a heritage management framework, negotiations with the local authority and Historic Scotland, and implementation of an archaeological programme.
