Chewton Glen

Michael was part of the Terence O'Rourke team that has a long-established relationship with this award-winning independent hotel and spa on the edge of the New Forest National Park. Over a number of years Michael was an integral part of the multi-disciplinary project team that devised an estate-wide master plan for a number of development projects on the estate, based around a new golf course.

Following this, full planning permission was gained for a new bedroom wing adjacent to the sensitive southern façade of the original hotel building, and more recently for a unique collection of bespoke luxury Treetop Houses, designed by the architectural team. The implementation of the Treetop Houses posed some demanding challenges on the Design Team. Working closely with the Main Contractors, Galliford Try, buildability issues and difficulties were overcome which drew on all the experience of Michael's team at Terence O'Rourke.
