REOPENING OF THE MANDARIN ORIENTAL HOTEL IN LONDON
May 24, 2019
The Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park in London, a vintage building from the 19th century in the heart of England’s capital, has undergone thorough renovation work, which was carried out in two phases, between November2016 and May 2019. BEC and PLENDI, from Vinci Construction, signed a partnership agreement to this end.
The 12,000 metre project, comprising all the rooms and public areas, including restaurants, bars and spa, was designed by the architecture firm PURCELL, while the interior design was entrusted to Joyce Wang studio and Thiany Design.
Bec was responsible for supplying and installing all interior doors, including the automatic closing mechanism, all bedroom and corridor mouldings, supplying and installing floors, acoustic partition walls of the penthouses and all fire doors.
The refurbishment, which was carried out while the iconic hotel was still operating, was a huge challenge for everyone involved in this process, but this was more than overcome, as the best solutions and materials were combined with luxury, comfort and elegance, attributed that are part of the historic hotel’s DNA.
