The George Hotel was originally a Georgian coaching house. The building’s primary use hasn’t changed over the centuries and it’s now an independent hotel. Faber were tasked with redesigning all public areas within the hotel; this included reception, bar, lounge, restaurant, orangery and toilets.Narrative is at the heart of the concept. In envisioning the hotel, we wrote a story; a love affair, set amongst the atmosphere of Victorian England, between George and Mary. Their journey through life is woven through the fabric of the space; George with his love of travel and engineering; Mary with her love of botanical studies and writing.
