Woods Bagot Restores Soviet Gem


International architectural firm Woods Bagot will restore and extend one of Moscow’s most iconic and historic properties – the Pekin Hotel – for the Fairmont Hotels and Resorts chain.

Built during the 1950s to celebrate the friendship between communist China and Soviet Russia, the new design will highlight and preserve its character, while bringing it up to date for today’s business traveller.

The hotel will feature a bar in its Belvedere tower providing visitors with spectacular views over central Moscow, along with a large spa and winter garden. Restoration will begin in 2013.
