GRAND HOTEL


Between 2014 and 2017 I documented the Grand’s restoration process. The external image was taken later on after the facade had been restored.

The Grand Hotel is a Grade II* listed Victorian hotel in the city centre of Birmingham, England. The hotel occupies the greater part of a block bounded by Colmore Row, Church Street, Barwick Street and Livery Street and overlooks St Philip's Cathedral and churchyard.

Designed by architect Thomson Plevins, construction began in 1875 and the hotel opened in 1879. Extensions and extensive interior renovations were undertaken by prominent Birmingham architecture firm Martin & Chamberlain from 1890 to 1895.Interior renovations included the building of the Grosvenor Room which boasts rich and impressive Louis XIV style decoration. — Wikipedia
