Archangel Somerset Hotel

Here is a fantastic owners – and the architect – have adopted a new approach: it has left the building to talk.

The Angel Inn was in a particularly terrible. Despite its long history, dating back to the Domesday Book, it had become a very attractive pub, where he had been a while since love had been lavished. In fact, when the new owner was Simon Waterfield in the months after it had closed suddenly, he found beer in pint glasses and even ashtrays cigarettes. The regulars who have moved to another location, although it is difficult to know where, with bars at the close of the Great Britain at 50 per week in those days.

Simon changed the name of the Archangel and began placing the restoration. Think medieval modern. Taylor springs architect has retained the old beams and walls and put in the program, retaining its sheen and leaving them largely unadorned speak eloquently for themselves. This is especially true in the restaurant and the barn, which has a mezzanine and a suspended glass “cube”, which holds a private dining table close to the transverse beams in the rows of “candles” (actually power) seem to burn and dripping wax.

Lighting everywhere, by Bruce Munro – the wonderful shower of light in the cathedral of Salisbury – is an imaginative wonder. Renaissance paintings of angels have been deployed around as extravagant wallpaper, and glass and steel, zinc and slate, leather and copper have been used to create a rustic style that feels lux is the case , as the decision to preserve the medieval narrow path that bisects the building across the back. Step length with slate floor gives out, no stables, but two living rooms, reception area and excellent toilet facilities, each with its own particularly impressive angel roof floor.
