A historic London office block overlooking Trafalgar Square is being transformed into a new boutique London hotel.
The St Martin’s Place Hotel, a 136 room property, will take inspiration from Art Deco styles, with brass-detailed bar stools in emerald green, and profound, statement arm chairs in bold blue.
The colour palette featured in the initial photos suggests monochrome, with warming golden tints and marble finishes to the communal areas.

The five-storey building will also increase in height by one floor. A new sixth floor will boast a rooftop bar, presumably with views over Trafalgar Square, and the fifth floor will be occupied by a new restaurant.
Willmott Dixon Interiors have been on boarded for the design, who are experts in London office building to hotel transformations. Their recent hotel projects include the Dorsett City Hotel near London’s Aldgate station.

“This is also another big investment in London as one of the world’s top destinations for visitors and we’re proud to be playing our part in stimulating further growth for our capital,” says managing director of Willmott Dixon Interiors, Graham Shaw.
The building’s transformation is being managed by EPR Architects, who will respect the office block’s heritage by leaving the building’s Post Office unscathed by renovations.
The hotel also adjoins the nearby Grade II Star listed St Martin’s Vicarage, Vestry and School.
Best Effort Ventures chose Willmott Dixon Interiors and EPR Architects for the project.
