Brown and Bancroft Interiors recently completed a £1.5m project for the Youth Hostel Association (YHA) at its premises in Keswick. This project was handed over in two phases, the first stage works focused on reinstating the ground floor of the building and administering damp proofing treatments as well as restoring external walk ways next to the River. While the second stage saw the installation of a new reception area and kitchen as well as improvement works to the entire 26-dorm hostel to refresh and upgrade facilities including adding en-suite bathrooms. In addition, a bright, modern 40-seat restaurant was created featuring four full-height glazed doors allowing YHA guests to look out onto the River at meal times.  All works were completed while the hostel remained open and fully functional.
