Westin Hotels & Resorts The Westin’s London City celebrates its brand premiere in Great Britain with the opening in September. The new London Hotel is on the banks of the Thames. The flowing design reflects the location of the bank and should contribute to the well-being of the guest. The idea came from Dexter Moran Associates, a British architect and interior designer.
The hotel, the last, soon-to-be-completed section of Thames Road, connects the shoreline (dam) with the Tower of London. Accordingly, The Westin London City Interior Design takes the connection between the metropolitan area and the tranquility of the Thames. The result is open, ventilated rooms. The atrium-like lobby, named “The Haven”, is adorned with a designated work by the well-known Dutch paper artist Gentenor Dorley. The installation takes the location of the bank and rotates and oscillates like plants underwater.
The lobby, which extends to two floors, has windows that reveal the surrounding area. Natural tones give a sense of calm. The furniture is naturally inspired by oak paneling, green tones, a matte finish and curved stripes. Angled windows in the rooms allow the view to wander through the bustle and bustle of the streets. There are nine differently designed apartments.
The hotel wants its guests to redesign their daily lives by discovering the importance of their health during the trip – for example the Hill Bathhouse was built around the remains of the Hughes below, including the 120m indoor pool at Westin’s 370sqm Heavenly Spa. Baths were one of the most important public places in Roman times. In the style of Roman excavations, the pool contains stone blocks structured next to soft, dark metal – a reference to history with a modern twist.
Dining options in West London include Heide & Seek, a riverside bar with views of the River Thames, Tate Modern and beyond, and an all-day dining mosaic set aside for privacy.
The Westin Club greets visitors on the fourth floor, away from public spaces, on the bridge over Upper Thames Street. Here, interior designers have taken the location of the hotel between St. Paul’s Cathedral and Queenhit Dock, the only remaining port area in the world since Anglo-Saxon times, in the form of soft wood and elegant furniture.
