Project Year: 2012
Cost: Over £2mWe were appointed by Quintain Estates to design a new hotel as part of their wider masterplan, which incorporates a mixture of commercial, leisure, retail and residential accommodation and community facilities around the landmark Wembley stadium.
It was important that this Four Star hotel have its own identity yet respect the context in which it sits. The polished black ceramic cladding reflects the contrasting white facades of the newly refurbished grade II listed Wembley Arena opposite and picks out shimmering reflections of the iconic arch of Wembley stadium. The hotel is not a stand-alone building, but part of a larger complex with shared plant and loading bay. We successfully liaised with the architects for the adjoining development to deliver a unified whole.
The hotel comprises of 361 bedrooms, conference facilities, a 660 seat capacity ballroom and a 280 seat restaurant where guests can enjoy dining with Wembley stadium as their backdrop. There is also a health club, pool and an exclusive rooftop sky bar with dramatic views across London. We delivered this impressive new-build hotel on budget and in time for the 2012 Olympic games.
Our interior design is distinctive yet reassuringly ‘Hilton’, with smart furnishings and a contemporary British feel. Natural light fills the interior by day and by night the spaces sparkle with a glamorous glow.
