The new hotel redevelopment is part of the restoration of Whiteleys, a landmark London project that will bring luxury dining, leisure and high-end accommodation facilities back to the well-known shopping and leisure destination.
The new scheme protects the site’s heritage and enhances its offer with the accommodation – a mix of apartments and townhouses – a hotel, retail, cinema and a variety of restaurants adding to the value of the scheme.
Our work as MEP, environmental and fire engineering consultants for the new 110-key Whiteleys Hotel. run by Six Senses, involves providing strategic services design - to guarantee the retaining of the existing historic Grade II Listed façade - as well as looking at the holistic design of the new site.
When opened, hotel visitors and club members will find an elegant lobby area beyond the restored entrance, with several restaurants and bar areas all framed around a feature staircase. The development will contain a members’ club, working and wellness areas as well as a gym and a leisure complex event lounge spaces, retail and a bar area.
An expansive gym area and studio rooms are complemented by wellness SPA areas containing a swimming pool, two communal saunas, male and female internal saunas in the changing areas, steam room and treatment rooms – including a floatation room, a sensory room and cryotherapy area.
The entire project has been driven by a strong sustainable agenda, with the aim of creating a zero-waste and plastic-free hotel that reflects the core ethos of a circular economy.
These various elements, as well as the architecture and interior design, have made the scheme an interesting technical challenge, but the scheme is due to be delivered on schedule and on budget.
