Mondrian London

Sea Containers House, Southwark

As Lead Designer and Hotel Architect on the conversion of Sea Containers House, our objective was to create a four-star hotel that would embody the elegance of a transatlantic 19th Century cruise liner.

The Mondrian Hotel in the south wing and lower level of the north wing of Sea Containers House includes 359 custom designed guest rooms and suites with balconies and river views. At ground floor, a new glazed entrance lobby is approached beneath the south wing of the hotel and the restaurant and bar extends the hotel’s frontage along the Thames Path to the north.

The main lobby features a large external and internal copper clad wall that runs from outside the building leading guests to the entrance. The renovated building offers guests several exceptional dining experiences; a riverside bar and brasserie with outside seating and a new rooftop lounge and terrace that boasts a spectacular panorama of the river and views to the City and beyond.

A broader masterplan aims to revitalise and enliven the public areas around the building and River Walkway and includes the creation of a new route between the River Walkway and Upper Ground on the west side of Sea Containers House.
