Mayfair Hotel

Design Practice Location:

London, United Kingdom

SHH was presented with the challenging brief to not only redesign the cocktail bar within a hotel that remains a significant international landmark, but also to create a space that could be used throughout the day without compromising its essential use as an evening venue. The previous refurbishment had robbed the space of its character, resulting in a bar that felt disassociated from its context; the aim within the design therefore also became about re-establishing a connection. Making use of a richly detailed palette of materials, the design interwove elements that provided hints into the bar, hotel, and sites past as well as the stories and events that have unfolded within the opulent walls of this space.
