A detailed feasibility study for a 102 key hotel on a prominent west-end site in London. Drawing on archetypal London townhouse typologies, a U-shaped arrangement makes the most of a constrained site with three party wall boundaries, drawing natural light deep into the plan.
The ground floor street elevation is set back with a covered loggia, creating a zone between the public realm and the ‘public’ areas of the hotel.
A grand staircase is inserted into the centre of the plan, dramatically opening up the ground floor public area to the south facing courtyard at the termination of the entrance axis.
Cores and front-of-house areas are arranged around the staircase, creating space for work, leisure and performance, drawing the city into the hotel.
