RPW Design inspired by Hyde Park for Intercontinental London Park Lane’s new Capital Suite

InterContinental London Park Lane launched The Capital Suite, the first business suite of its kind that allows various areas of the suite to be separated. The 335 square meter (3,606 square foot) suite created by RPW Design was inspired by Hyde Park, the nature and history surrounding the hotel and its location.

The Capital Suite has two private en suite bedrooms complemented by interconnecting living spaces that can be separated to ensure privacy for individual areas.The Capital Suite takes its name from the hotel’s setting in London. Paying homage to the historical site, rooms within the suite were named after the surrounding areas of Hamilton Place and the Wellington Arch, which once stood as the entrance to the capital city. The suite offers views of the Arch and Green Park.

RPW designers also used natural materials, such as leathers, stone and walnut timbers as a basis for the color schemes. Design touches contain homages to the Hyde Park, such as bespoke bronze handles evocative of tree branches for the cabinetry. Artwork and accessories draw on the park’s equine traditions and the historic location of the hotel. Bespoke stitching details of the plane, the tree that populates and represents London’s Royal Parks, were incorporated into the headboard design in The Hamilton Bedroom. The green landscape of the park inspired textures, patterns and themes within the carpet designs and artworks.

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

In the master bedroom, design touches include decorative bronze panels, that frame the bed by resembling windows with climbing foliage and songbirds. RPW Design worked with art consultant Peter Millard for the artworks that include the resin sculpture on the bathroom mirror.

A boardroom can be directly accessed through a private corridor, lift and entrance, and can be interconnected with the other rooms. On the opposite side, there is a private office and an additional meeting room, which can also be linked to the boardroom.
