The Black Swan Hotel, Helmsley

The Black Swan is an historic coaching inn turned boutique hotel. This has been an extensive project where we have worked closely with the client over a period of 5 years.

Each area of the hotel was dealt with as a separate project with a different business and target clientele, but the aim was also to create one whole hotel with the areas flowing seamlessly into one another.

The clients wanted to retain the tradition of a coaching inn but in the context of modern luxury.

There was the additional challenge of having to make a number of major structural alterations. The result had to look as if it were part of the original building that dates back to the 15th Century.
