The Frontline Club

The Frontline Club is a private club for journalists, photo journalists and the media crowd located a few minutes from Paddington Station. We have just opened a ’boutique hotel’ exclusively for members.

The building had been in terrible repair. We had to achieve a planning change of use (in collaboration with Colliers Planning) to allow the club to use it as an annex to its operations.

The building feels traditional but has been given given a fresh Frontline Club feel. Highlighted by the quirky mixture of traditional British architectural elements set against Moroccan light shades with the drama of huge club members images depicting key moments in recent history.

“We are very excited about our new Annex which provides smart and comfortable bedrooms and en suite bathrooms for our members at an affordable price. We had to get a planning ‘change of use’ for the building, which was our first hurdle. Then we had to refurbish the building, which hadn’t been touched for many a year. We are delighted with the result. Many thanks to Hodgkinson Design who have steered this through some ‘tricky waters’.”
