The studio of Richard Rogers have been commissioned to design a luxury hotel and residences for hospitality group Mandarin Oriental in the fashionable heart of London’s Mayfair district.
Due to open in 2021 between Bond Street and Regent Street on Hanover Square, the Mandarin Oriental Mayfair is described by developer Clivedale London as “an intimate, boutique property”.
Architects Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners – who last year redesigned the entrance at the iconic Berkeley Hotel in the British capital – have been tasked with creating “an exclusive oasis of contemporary luxury”.
The hotel will feature 50 guestrooms and suites, a fine-dining restaurant, a lobby lounge, a bar and a private roof terrace overlooking Mayfair.
The upper floors will house 80 residences – marketed as “some of the most exclusive private homes in the city” – with access to the hotel’s indoor pool, a fitness centre and Mandarin Oriental spa.
This will be the second London property for the group – which operates 31 hotels and eight residences in 21 countries and territories – following the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, currently being comprehensively renovated by interior designer Joyce Wang.
“We’re delighted to be opening a second Mandarin Oriental property here, and look forward to extending the group’s legendary hospitality to another of the city’s most exclusive addresses,” said James Riley, group chief executive of Mandarin Oriental.
“Operating two complementary hotels in a single destination is something that the group has already done successfully in Hong Kong.”
Clivedale London’s CEO, Tarun Tyagi, added: “Together we are setting a new precedent for architecture, design and lifestyle in a world-class location, and we look forward to bringing the best of both worlds to our discerning clientele – the comforts of a private home combined with Mandarin Oriental’s legendary hospitality.”
