opening earlier this year, design research studiounder the creative direction of tom dixon has completed the interiors for the mondrian london hotel. situated on the banks of the river thames, the original structure was finalized in the 1970s by american warren platner – an architect who was also known for his distinctive cruise liner designs.

referencing the building’s nautical form, the hotel encapsulates the elegance of a 1920s transatlantic ship, with copper cladding leading guests inside an expansive reception lobby. building on the extensive metal finishes already in place, a matrix of brasswork permeates the design, framing each bedroom door and eventually morphing into a rooftop cocktail bar that boasts views across the british capital.

the scheme’s 359 bedrooms contain bespoke furniture with rich color palettes that provide a stark contrast with the metallic detailing. continuing the maritime theme, bathrooms draw on marine engineering incorporating porthole mirrors that are usually found on board ships. the architecture of the hotel spa is organized around a secret water feature, with the color scheme gradating from white through to darker tones, designed to encourage and facilitate relaxation.
