Project Detail

St Martins Lodge, Leicester

Small Non-Residential Scheme of the Year Award 2019 Finalist

The Diocese of Leicester created a new hotel, St Martins Lodge, from a neglected three storey Grade II listed former office building on the corner of New Street and Peacock Lane.

The revival of a faded but fine example of a former town house is part of the Diocese’s creation of a city centre hub for its activities.

Adjacent to its St Martins headquarters and Leicester Cathedral, St Martins Lodge preserves its 18th century design and workmanship whilst meeting the expectations of today’s 21st century traveller.

Project Overview

The Diocese has re-purposed the building to its former use of providing accommodation, creating a valuable asset and source of income to support the work of the Church.

A careful approach in early planning resulted in at least 75 per cent of the building remaining true to its origins. Plasterwork, coving and features such as fireplaces remain largely intact.

Externally, the building has an understated elegance. The neo-Georgian facade has been sympathetically restored to complement its neighbours.

St Martin’s Lodge is gaining positive reviews online and in the media, and is already operating at 85 per cent occupancy.
