Skene Catling de la Pena

5 Hertford Street & Lou Lou's (London, 2009)

The renovation of a block of ten Grade-II listed Georgian terraces and conversion into a private members club in Shepherd Market, Mayfair. Of the buildings five floors; basement, ground and first are private members bars, restaurants and retail space; second and third are serviced apartments. The site had been empty and partially derelict since the closure of Tiddy Dols Eating House in 1998.

Skene Catling de la Peña developed a detailed scheme for the site that was successfully taken through a complicated licensing, planning and listed building consent through to tendering.
