David Chipperfield wins Regent Street hotel contract

  • Comment

David Chipperfield has been appointed to convert a major chunk of London’s Regent Street into a five-star hotel

David Chipperfield Architects will renovate the listed interiors of the former Café Royal while creating a state-of-the-art, 160-room hotel that will cover the entire southern Quadrant block of Regent Street.

The features to be retained include the marble Entrance Hall, the Grill Room and Domino Room. The project will also reinstate another historic area as a new double-height foyer and turn five more into large VIP Suites.

‘Our project aims to ensure that the existing building’s Louis-XVI interiors sit comfortably within the framework of an entirely new, state of the art hotel,’ said the practice. It has already completed two similar projects in the US, converting New York’s Radiator Building and two art deco structures in Miami into luxury hotels.

Construction of the Café Royal project is expected to begin in summer 2009 and conclude before 2012.
