The Flint

 

The Flint is a 55 bed hotel located on Howard Street in Belfast, which aims to say goodbye to the traditional hotel aesthetic. We were in love with the building since day one and knew we had to do something sympathetic yet unique. It is located in Howard House, a War Memorial Hostel built in 1926 and so many of the original features were uncovered during the renovation works, including beautiful herringbone timber floors. Although it took quite a lot of work to restore this beautiful floor, we thought it was important to keep the history of the original building, including the concrete footprint of walls that are no longer there.
