Landmark hotel the University Arms, Cambridge will relaunch in late Autumn 2017 after a £80m transformation following a unique collaboration between the architect John Simpson and the interior designer Martin Brudnizki.
The redevelopment has been designed by the nation’s foremost classical architect, John Simpson, and includes the replacement of the building’s 1960s and 1970s extensions with a new classically designed building that fits with Cambridge’s better-known architectural heritage and buildings in the immediate vicinity.
The hotel’s interiors are being designed by Martin Brudnizki, arguably one of Europe’s foremost leading interior architects. The hotel will comprise 192 beautiful and ‘playfully’ designed new hotel rooms and suites, a destination restaurant and bar, library, underground valet car parking and fitness facilities.
In addition, a public art project will be unveiled in the Summer on Parker’s Piece to celebrate the hotel historical location and significance to the local community.
