Four Seasons Hampshire Hotel was designed by Mackenzie Wheeler Architects.
The existing buildings now provide reception, library, bars and guest suite accommodation with a new gatehouse entrance and scenic driveway. The old stable block has been extended to create a new spa, linked to the existing buildings via an all-glass structure to meet with operator and heritage requirements. Within the broader landscape an equestrian centre, fishing and boating lake has been created as part of a restoration programme.
Formerly the headquarters of the Systems Union Group, the project comprises the conversion of Dogmersfiled park, a grade 1 listed country estate extending to 250 acres. Mackenzie Wheeler was appointed by the developer to design a five star 135 key Hotel and Country Club.

Designed by Make Architects, located in London. The external envelope has been restored to its original massing with the interior completely reconfigured to reconnect the house with its gardens. Light, vistas and selected glimpses of the grounds beyond are drawn through the interior and a new extension capped by an undulating roof reinforces this vital relationship between the house and its setting. Contemporary detailing captures the original spirit of the house's design, with the understated modernity of the scheme complemented by a warm palette of traditional materials such as bronze, oak and brick.
