From the creators of Studio 54, comes a hip new hotel
The London Edition
After a nearly 15-year hiatus, (his most recent work in the British capital began with The Sanderson and St. Martins Lane hotels in London), one of the most successful hoteliers in the world - Ian Schrager returns to the capital. One of the creators of the "boutique hotel" concept, Mr. Schrager has now partnered with Marriot International to bring us The Edition, London. Buro 24/7 Middle East revealed the new project back in early November last year, join us as we take a closer look...
The Edition Hotel group will represent a microcosm of the hippest and busiest cities in the world. With Istanbul and London now open, there are plans for Miami and New York in 2014 and 2015 and moving to more exotic locations, on the drawing board for 2016 are Abu Dhabi, Gurgaon , Sanya and Bangkok. Edition Hotels is hoping to merge the quality and history of Marriott International with the bold embodiment of Ian Schrager.
The London Edition Hotel is located in the center of the British capital, not far from Oxford Street. The hotel's core is a renovated mansion, with a forever buzzing lobby, three dining areas (one restaurant and two bars), state of the art fitness club and 173 comfortable suites and spacious family penthouses.
The interior design of the hotel comes from the partners Yabu Pushelberg - George Yabu and Glenn Pushelberg - inspired by renowned minimalist artist/designer Donald Judd and the world famous Ingo Maurer. The interior motif is a soft, modern fusion on medieval chic (use of rich materials, velvet fabrics, fur throws, dark wood moldings, modern lights, etc.) showcasing refined modern luxury.
Cozy rooms and suites are decorated with light and dark wood paneling of walnut and oak. There is nothing superfluous: the rooms are equipped with only the most necessary furniture, large panoramic windows and a few decorative elements. For VIP guests there are several multi-level penthouses with an area of 200 square meters, with spacious terraces.
London Edition also has three dining outlets: Berners Tavern restaurant in the great hall, under the leadership of Michelin star genius Jason Atherton, Chamber lobby bar and Punch room.
