Rosewood Signs Second Luxury Hotel in London

(05 Mar 2021)
Rosewood, in partnership with Qatari Diar, is to
manage a luxury hotel in a Grade II listed building in London which once
housed the largest western
embassy in the world.

Until recently, the London Chancery Building –
known to some as ‘Fortress America’ – was the workplace of some 700
employees.

Originally built by architect Eero Saarinen in
1960, the building, which covers the whole western side of Grosvenor
Square, will be converted into a luxury hotel by Sir David Chipperfield of David Chipperfield Architects
with interiors by French architect Joseph Dirand.

The hotel, scheduled to open in 2024, will be
called The Chancery Rosewood.


“We are proud to have The Chancery Rosewood lead
the transformation of the revitalized Grosvenor Square, an
incredible public interest initiative that is nearly a decade in
the making,” said Sonia Cheng, chief executive officer of Rosewood
Hotel Group. “The gifted team of architects and designers will
breathe a second life into the iconic building, which is poised to
become a superlative destination in London, and we thank our
partners at Qatari Diar for the chance to be a part of this
remarkable project.”

The building’s original features and mid-century
design details, including the iconic Grade II façade and diagrid
ceiling, will be retained through a meticulous preservation
process, with a
mission to reinforce and enhance Saarinen’s original vision of a
‘palace on the park’.

This exercise will extend into the interiors. Taking
inspiration from the sophistication of the 1920s and the
creativity and glamour of the 1960s, the design scheme will draw
from a warm, rich color palette and feature refined, Art
Deco-style detailing, walnut paneling and marble and brass
accents, altogether channeling the ambiance of a traditional
British gentlemen’s club.

The project is also aiming to be both the first
five-star hotel and first U.K. hotel to ever receive a BREEAM
outstanding rating for sustainable development.

Upon completion, The Chancery Rosewood will
feature 139
guestrooms and suites, as well as
public spaces and dining venues designed by Tristan
Auer and Bar Studio.

Facilities will consist
of a Yabu Pushelberg-designed Asaya integrative wellness facility,
five retail outlets and a selection of meeting and events spaces
including a 750-guest ballroom.

The hotel will be Rosewood’s second property in London and sixth in Europe.
