The Bermondsey Square Hotel, a 90-room property in south London, added six new terrace rooms. These first-floor rooms have private balconies overlooking the Bermondsey Square and antique market.
The first-floor terrace rooms were conceptualized by design firms Offset Architects and Fileturn. Meanwhile, the private balconies were individually appointed by final-year architecture students from the University of East London, led by Alex Scott-Whitby of Scott Whitby Studio and mentored by Purcell Architects. The students' brief was to be sympathetic to the hotel's local history while considering the environment by upcycling available materials.
The Bermondsey Square Hotel is located near restaurants, design studios, boutique shops, an indie cinema and antiques market. It is similarly located near Tower Bridge, Borough Market, The Shard and Tate Modern.
