Hotel L’oscar – from former Baptist Church to luxury hotel

Planning Resolution secured the planning permission for L’oscar – the luxurious 5-star hotel with restaurant, bar and conference facilities in London.

The project involved the sensitive and complex change of use of the Grade II* former Baptist Church at Southampton Row, which was on the Historic England ‘At Risk’ Register.

Using viability and heritage arguments we successfully managed to maximise the buildings potential securing an additional 4 storeys to the roof and provide accommodation within spectacular historic rooms, very much integrating the beautiful old historic fabric with the new.

Planning Resolution managed to secure extensive F&B facilities that have direct access and frontage to the street as ‘ancillary’ hotel use, which is of considerable value to the hotel.
