Owned and managed by Kent County Council, Oakwood House is a hotel, conference and events centre in Maidstone, Kent. This Victorian mansion combines classical architecture and period features with contemporary accommodation to provide comfortable yet characteristic facilities.
Under two separate commissions, Lee Evans Partnership were appointed to design ‘The Courtyard Bar’, a bar and café area placed within a previously unused courtyard area. This scheme created an glazed atrium constructed above the existing courtyard, creating a unique space, flooded with natural daylight.
The John Wigan Suite is a sympathetic extension to the existing mansion building, with materials chosen to reflect those of the existing building, which provides a spacious and modern venue for events.
