UK: esa Serviced Apartments has added nine apartments at the Grade II listed Burkhardt Hall to its portfolio.

The building, formally the Swindon Technical College, is home to four one-bedroom and five two-bedroom serviced apartments. Named after George Henry Burkhardt, headmaster from 1904 to 1932, the property was built in 1895 and designed in a Flemish-Baroque style by local architect Thomas Ball Silcock.

The renovated entrance hall is home to a memorial window designed by local artist Michelle Merlini. A Special Time and Place features a bright poppy field leading to the Hackpen White Horse, a local landmark cut to commemorate the coronation of Queen Victoria in 1838. The poppies remember the lives of 45 students who lost their lives in World War II.

Chris Minhinnett, esa's managing director, said: "Burkhardt Hall is a phenomenal building - it really does set the standard. History and heritage are hugely important to esa, so I am particularly pleased with these well-designed, ridiculously spacious serviced apartments. I really don't think there's anything like them on the market and I encourage anyone looking to book corporate accommodation in Swindon to arrange a viewing before they're snapped up."

Charlie Turner, CEO of esa, said: "Swindon is one of the best-connected business hubs in the UK and has been growing in popularity for some time, so to launch our beautifully crafted yet affordable Burkhart Hall apartments is a fantastic moment for us. We're extremely proud of it. History and heritage is at the forefront of esa's exciting new direction. The conservation of this historic building has been spectacularly safeguarded for the benefit of our guests."
