The acclaimed British designer, Tom Dixon, has been appointed by Pan Pacific to to create a destination bar in Devonshire House, with the aim to design a ‘home from home’ in the city of London…
Set to launch in Autumn 2021, this appointment will further cement Pan Pacific London’s commitment to combining world-class design with hospitality to encourage a new generation of guests to make the City of London their home away from home.
“We look forward to creating an exciting new location in the middle of the city at breakneck speed.” – Tom Dixon.
“We have recently spent a lot of time designing spaces all over the world so it’s a great pleasure to find ourselves with a project on our doorstep commissioned by our friends at Pan Pacific London, who are showing their commitment to London and to Bar Culture just when most of the sector is frozen,” explained Dixon. “We look forward to creating an exciting new location in the middle of the city at breakneck speed. We’ll see you all for a cocktail in Autumn 2021!”
Anne Golden, General Manager at Pan Pacific London added: “We are thrilled to have Tom Dixon and his talented design team on board. Tom’s design aesthetic will be perfectly placed in Devonshire House and will complement the existing architecture and heritage of this beautiful building. I am confident that they will create a space that is unique and exciting, allowing the bar to become one of the finest destinations in the city and a compelling addition to the already vibrant cocktail bar scene in East London.”
The hotel, which was referenced on Hotel Designs during an interview with Mark Kelly, Partner at PLP Architecture, is being described as an ‘architectural marvel’ – the project’s vision is to balance a design that is sensitive to the Asian heritage of the brand whilst creating an ultra-modern, timeless hotel and complex that challenges conventional architecture.
Fronted by PLP Architecture and with design by Yabu Pushelberg, the hotel is unmatched in scale and quality by any existing hotels in the area. It will open in 2021 featuring 237 guestrooms and one-bedroom suites; two restaurants and bars; a wellbeing floor with treatment rooms, relaxation pods, a well-equipped gym and fitness area, Café and 18.5m indoor infinity pool; public plaza; two floors of meeting rooms and event spaces as well as the largest ballroom in the square mile; and more.
