The boutique hotel, formerly owned by Sir Terence Conran, features 17 bedrooms, a rooftop bar and basement restaurant, as well as a cafe.

McCulloch plans to renovate the property before reopening it in 2022. The basement space its set to be reinvented as a bar space with food pop-ups. The cafe on the ground floor will close altogether and reopen as an all-day bar and brasserie.

Speaking about the transformation, McCulloch said: “The Boundary is an iconic building on one of the most desirable streets in East London. With an opportunity to create varying offers across multiple floors, we have exciting plans to give this property a new lease of life. We are working with a leading design team to transform the various spaces and are putting together an impressive line-up of chefs, artists, musicians and mixologists to help put the Boundary back on the London map.”

Harcourt Inns was founded in 2014 with the acquisition of The Harcourt in Marylebone. The group has grown to six sites including The Coach in Clerkenwell and KPH in Notting Hill.

Refurbishment of Boundary Hotel is expected to begin Q1 2022.
