The Rockwell HotelImages1 / Information
Location London SW5
Status Completed 2006
This four star boutique hotel consists of two houses knocked together to create space for 40 rooms, with a design that emphasises its domestic character. The entrance hallway’s original mosaic floor has been restored and its colours provide a palette for the interior design of the rest of the common areas. A walnut floor and bookshelves, the fireplace and the pendant lamp hanging in the window all add to the warm intimate atmosphere.
The bar was designed as a discreet piece of furniture which also doubles as a breakfast servery, while the dining room was extended by infilling between two existing wings with a wall of windows overlooking the garden. It is connected to the garden by a glass walkway over the lightwell, which is lit up at night to form a blue bridge. The south facing garden was remodelled and lined with timber slat walls and a hardwood deck.
