ABOUT

The Peninsula London occupies a prominent site in Belgravia, facing Wellington Arch, and looking across the Royal Parks. The site’s unique context has been carefully explored and is reflected in the architectural design, detailing and materials palette, which is limited to the highest quality materials typical to the area.

The building’s form was inspired by the Palazzo Farnese in Rome -a ‘four square’ building with streets to either side, facing onto a public space and overlooking greenery to the rear elevation. It is simply and logically organised on four wings with eight levels of accommodation arranged around the central courtyard providing 190 guest rooms and 26 residential apartments. At ground level, an elegant double-height lobby is intentionally positioned to overlook Hyde Park Corner. The building’s upper levels are set back providing a series of planted terraces and beautiful external spaces, as well as a bar and restaurant space.

A further five floors sit below ground and house a spectacular double-height ballroom, providing luxurious function and pre-function space for up to 720 people; The Peninsula Spa and Wellness Centre; facilities for the Residences; and car parking and hotel servicing.
Throughout the building, materials were chosen for their warm elegant or tactile properties. Canopies and glazing are framed in bronze. A tranquil courtyard featuring hand-crafted granite paving and 125-year-old Japanese Maple Trees, offers guests and visitors a calm and luxurious sense of arrival.

The scale and ambition of this project presented the design team with an extraordinary challenge. Key to the design was ensuring the complex functional requirements and back-of-house operations could run in perfect tandem with the idea of a bespoke, hand-made building that creates a welcoming and memorable experience for each and every resident and guest.
