THE CHALLENGE: Although most of its original features had been long removed, the conservation officer was keen to retain and restore what was left. The original Elm and English Oak floors were carefully restored throughout, as well as retaining or replacing the original fireplaces, panel doors and architraves. We restored and repolished the grand staircase to its former glory.
THE SOLUTION: The concept, as always with the Zizzi brand, incorporates the best of the history of the locality. This includes links to the Cathedral, and the famous composer Edward Elgar, whose father owned a sheet music and instruments shop in the town. We drew inspiration from the Worcester’s famous porcelain, the oldest newspaper in the world, Berrow's Worcester Journal, and the Glove manufacturers that had operated until the late 20th Century.
