One Aldwych / Jestico Whiles

Jestico + Whiles was appointed by Gordon Campbell-Gray as his architects and interior architects for the conversion of the old Morning Post offices into a new five star hotel.

The Grade II listed building houses a 105-bed hotel, award-winning bars, restaurant, cinema and health spa.

The main entrance to the building has been re-established at the centre of the Aldywch fa├žade, which leads to the double-height lobby bar.

The reception is deliberately concealed, with the sense of space accentuated by white stone floor and white walls.

Each bedroom design is unique, embraced in a common language of stone, glass and steel, animated by sweeping curved partitions.
