Moveable walls in London hotel
The Londoner is the world's first super boutique hotel, located on the south west corner of Leicester Square. It offers a collection of spaces, tastes and experiences brought to life across 16 storeys, curated to reflect the drama and elegance of London’s West End life.
Working with architect Woods Bagot, interior designer Yabu Pushelberg, and contractors Blue Sky Building & EE Smith Contracts, Style was specified to deliver extensive flexible space in the main ballroom and meeting rooms.
Located in the banqueting space, Style installed a 6 metre high Skyfold moveable wall in the main ballroom enabling the room to be quickly divided into two large event rooms or opened up into one vast space.
Skyfold is the fully automatic moveable wall, discreetly housed in the ceiling cavity which descends effortlessly into place at the push of a button. With an incredible 59dB Rw acoustic rating, lively, large scale events can take place either side of the wall undisturbed.
In the hotel’s meeting rooms, Style installed various systems which combined semi-automatic Dorma Huppe Variflex double glazed moveable walls with 52dB Rw acoustic ratings and fully glazed pass doors. These meeting areas were then additionally sub divided with smaller Skyfold vertically rising walls offering complete flexibility.
This gives the hotel multiple options for opening up and dividing the space, offering maximum potential for room hire and bookings for different types of meetings and corporate gatherings.
“This is a stunning installation,” said Style’s group managing director, Julian Sargent. “The main Skyfold was finished in an oak real wood veneer, and the glass moveable walls had chic black painted frames with reeded glass to offer confidentiality within the rooms
“They therefore not only offer the Londoner a stylish enhancement to their overall interior design, but extensive flexibility to hire out the space for multiple functions and meetings, becoming a really important ‘revenue-generating’ asset for the hotel.”
