The designer and architect have transformed the building’s exterior which dramatically change and lighten the existing structure whilst greatly improving thermal performance by means of a new external fin system designed to create solar shading. To comply with Westminster Council’s request to include public artwork, the Hyde Park elevation features a large full height artwork of undulating burnished metal panels stretching from the first to eighth floors. A contemporary take on the art deco style, reminiscent of the Dorchester next door, aimed at a much younger contemporary clientele.

The hotel comprises 5,859sqm over eleven levels with 45 luxury rooms and suites, also a penthouse, all have views Hyde Park.

The challenge of the project was to explore solutions that could turn a 1960’s building into a sustainable project for the 21st Century. The scheme has benefited from pioneering fire strategy solutions. It’s the first hotel in London with a single internal staircase, maximizing the available space to allow for a maximum amount of rooms and a double height restaurant and bar.
