With a strong focus on design, each part of the property has been carefully created to reflect the fascinating history and ambiance of the surrounding area, combining Bankside’s authentic urban grittiness and polished contemporary design.
Designed within strict height constraints and conceived as three adjoining forms, two low and one tall, the property spans 20,325 square metres and is linked by a volumetric glazed entrance and inner light well.
Inspired by the authenticity and history of the local Bankside neighbourhood, a combination of urban and Brutalist architecture and fine polished features are central to the signature design and luxury feel of the new Hilton London Bankside.
“Hilton London Bankside was a hugely exciting project for us. From the very beginning, when we were given the brief in 2005, we knew that we had a fantastic opportunity to be a true part of the regeneration of Bankside as an area,” says Joseph Stella, Partner at twenty2Degrees. “We took the ethos and quality of service that is synonymous with Hilton and combined it with the grittiness of Bankside to create what we think of as something very special.”
“Hilton London Bankside epitomises our approach to design responding to project context: “everywhere is an idea”. From the exterior, we wanted the building to relate to its existing neighbours, and echo the urban character of Bankside, then within, we were able to create striking stories directly inspired by the this thriving neighbourhood” adds Ben Tilston, Associate at Dexter Moren Associates.
