Four-star 13-storey hotel on a narrow site in central London

The 177 room hotel sits between the southern end of Waterloo Road and St. Georges Circus. It is composed of three parts - base, middle and crown - with varying levels and heights.

The building is cut back at ground level to create a path for pedestrians, the resulting overhang forms an entrance into the glazed foyer. There is a ground level bar that can be accessed from the street.

The elevations are a combination of brickwork and large openings. They are not load bearing but made from pre-cast concrete panels with brick set into them.

Inside the walls are neutral coloured with floor-to-ceiling picture windows providing views out to the surrounding area.
