ReardonSmith Architects shows off remake of Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane

ReardonSmith showcased the Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane, where the company was the lead architect with responsibility for architectural planning and design, interior design detailing and on-site design compliance in the multi-million dollar rebuilding of the property.

The objective of the renovation was to increase the asset value of the building.

It was the first time that the building had been entirely stripped back to its structure, a move said to be necessary to facilitate a major upgrading of all the services and also enabling the re-planning of virtually every part of the hotel. The project also included a two-story glazed extension, newly modeled garden suites with conservatories, a new lift core and new kitchens.

The interior design concepts for front-of-house areas were by Pierre-Yves Rochon with the exception of a 10th floor rooftop extension, which was designed by Eric Parry Architects.

At ground level, the area has been opened up to allow glimpses through the space to the newly landscaped garden beyond. The eight guestroom floors have been re-configured to more than double the number of suites, many of which now enjoy views, outdoor terraces and working fireplaces.
