Following its official opening at the end of last month, Hampton by Hilton London Waterloo has claimed the title of being the brand’s largest hotel outside the US. Leading hotel designers Dexter Moren Associates worked closely with Shiva Hotels and McAleer & Rushe to deliver the 297-bedroom development which occupies a prominent position on the corner of Waterloo Road and Gray Street just south of Waterloo Station.
The hotel’s contemporary façade is made from precast concrete, with a series of windows that are recessed and angled alternately in different directions. The elevation subtly changes in appearance as the angles in the facia, combined with the use of cladding in different colour tones, capture light and shadow that vary according to the daylight conditions.
At ground level a glass façade creates a strong connection between passers-by and the interior spaces, including Assado Restaurant run by celebrity chef Cyrus Todiwala.
