The Whiteley — the wider 1,100,000ft² development — will bring together new, modern architecture with retained and restored Grade II listed features. In addition to Six Senses London, it will house 139 world-class residences curated by development manager Finchatton, 20 new shops, cafés and restaurants, a cinema and a state-of-the-art gym.
As hotel fit-out and lead designer, EPR is collaborating with design and concept firm AvroKO on Six Senses London’s interiors — fusing sentimental nods to classical detailing and Art Deco with contemporary influences — and with Foster + Partners on The Whiteley exteriors.
Six Senses Spa has been designed to reflect the contrasting energies and experiences of city life. Highlights include a fitness studio, a 20m indoor swimming pool, a steam room and sauna, a relaxation room and the Alchemy Bar. The Whiteley houses a historic iron staircase, modelled on Milan’s La Scala opera house, which will become an interior centrepiece for the new hotel, leading residents and members to a private members’ social and wellness club. This space will feature a central bar and lounge, co-working spaces, restaurants and wellness rooms.
Residents at Six Senses London will benefit from full access to the hotel’s services and amenities, including the state-of-the-art gym, swimming pool, music room, childcare facilities, libraries, meeting rooms, a sports hall, dining facilities, housekeeping, concierge and arts and wellness programming.
