Westminster Council have granted planning permission for an extension to the luxury Mandeville Hotel in Mayfair designed by London hotel architects Dexter Moren Associates. Working with The Mandeville Hotel, DMA have developed plans to give the hotel’s dated 1970s annexe wing a long awaited facelift as well as adding 38 guestrooms, increasing the total number of rooms in the hotel to 180.
In tandem with Howard de Walden’s plans to improve pedestrian experience along Marylebone Lane, the enhanced shop fronts and additional retail space of the Mandeville Hotel’s improved annexe will play a major role in regenerating and enhancing this key gateway to Marylebone Village from Wigmore Street. A new façade to the entire annexe will also bring about an exciting transformation to the skyline and the wider conservation area. In addition to the proposed brick and stone finishes, the hotel’s annexe tower will also showcase etched metal cladding featuring abstracted street patterns of Marylebone and highlighting the lost River Tyburn which still runs under Marylebone Lane today. The analogy of the river is also used as a generator for a second façade artwork proposed on the opposite side of the annexe tower, giving an artwork presence to both approaches along Marylebone Lane.
