EPR Architects transforms historic prison into NoMad London luxury hotel

Architect Mark Bruce of EPR Architects told Dezeen how the firm created an ornate luxury hotel in the shell of an 18th-century prison in this video produced for the AHEAD hospitality awards by Dezeen.

NoMad London is located in the former Grade-II listed Bow Street Magistrates Court and Police Station in Covent Garden, London.

The property is the first overseas outpost of American hotel brand NoMad.

NoMad is a luxury hotel in central London

The AHEAD Awards celebrate striking hospitality projects from across the world and is split into four different regions: Europe, Middle East and Africa,  Asia and the Americas.

“Interpretation of luxury is a really interesting topic, especially when you come to a project like NoMad, London. How do you turn a magistrate’s court and a police station that had prison cells into a luxury environment,” Bruce told Dezeen.

The prison’s historic inhabitants include the Kray Twins, Oscar Wilde and Emmeline Pankhurst.
