Philip Payne lighting shines in listed building project

When a new Five Star Hotel was specified for Cheltenham, Philip Payne had a special request to fulfil.

Interior designer Nina Campbell specified special colour variants for Philip Payne Products selected for use on the Hotel De La Bere project at Ellenborough Park near Cheltenham.

Philip Payne have fashioned emergency lighting products to match external brickwork along with the striking interior design in line with English Heritage requirements.

Payne have an impressive back catalogue of heritage work and this is another project that demonstrates their ability to craft product to fit into the finest of environments.

The estate dates back to the late 15th century with the house at the centre of the current refurbishment becoming known as “Southam Delabere” in 1865 whilst under the ownership of the Earl of Ellenborough, a former Viceroy of India.

After a series of tenants the house became a private girls school in 1947 before become a hotel in 1973. This most recent project brings the building up to current emergency lighting standards with Philip Payne meeting both colour matching and special mounting requirements to ensure that the impact of these statutory products is minimised.
