Alfred Dunhill, Bourdon House, Mayfair

 

This property was once the London residence of the 2nd Duke of Westminster. The Richemont Group purchased the building which at the time was in need of major investment.

This project involved major structural alterations, a large basement extension, full façade restoration and fitting out to a very high standard. The programme commenced with Demolition and structural works only being agreed with the conservation and listed building departments of the Local Authority. At this stage the design was still being drawn up however, works commenced to save time.

Works were completed over 10 months to the value of £3.3 million.

The building contains 4 bedrooms, a spa, 2 retail areas, a tailor, gents traditional barbers, museum, private dining rooms, a restaurant and a basement bar, cinema and humidor.

The property is littered with original architectural points of interest and retains much of the splendid features. All which had to be carefully protected or restored by specialist tradesman. Every original feature was restored under the watchful eye of the conservation department within Westminster Council

As well as the façade and internal areas of the building being fully restored, the courtyards and original boundary walls were also repaired and landscaped. Original York stone was purchased from salvage yards to recreate the original feel to the retail court yard on Davis Street

The exterior elevations were also fully restored and the brickwork was all re-stained by hand to match the original details and colours.

The project was completed in 2009 to a very high standard and is now the new Head office, restaurant, Hotel and retail outlet for Alfred Dunhills in Mayfair.
