Manchester-based architects Buttress have been chosen to return Exeter’s Royal Clarence hotel to its former glory after it was destroyed by a fired in October 2016.

The studio have been working with structural engineers Thomasons since the fire devastated the Grade II 16th century building to assess the extent of the damage and make the remaining elements safe.

Following that piece of work, Buttress will commence with a full restoration process, which will include a revamp of the interior design.

Surviving features of the historical and architectural importance will be incorporated into the rebuild.

“Over the past few months, our efforts have been focused on stabilising the building, taking great care to save as much as possible of what remains,” said David Shatwell, director of Buttress.

“Now most of the debris has been cleared, we are pleased to be in a position where we can move forward with the next stage of work.”

Stephanie Hocking, chief executive of Andrew Brownsword hotels – the owner of the building – said the company was working with Buttress to “secure the future of the hotel”.

She added: “As such a significant historic building, we are pleased to be entering the rebuild phase and look forward to delivering a hotel the city can once again be proud of.”

Andrew Brownsword purchased the 53-room hotel in 2003 for £4.5m.
