David Chipperfield Architects, world famous for radical and sympathetic building design, has achieved a perfect balance between 21st century style and the retained grand historic public rooms of the 1860s and 1920s, which have been painstakingly restored in collaboration with Historic Building Architects; Donald Insall Associates.
The serene new rooms and suites are being created in a contemporary style characterised by a refined simplicity touched with grand classical features in stone and copper.
The overall effect of the hotel’s 159 guest rooms and suites, including the six ‘historic’ suites that echo the glories of the Café Royal’s past, is calm, assured and distinctive.
David Chipperfield designs museums and galleries, hotels, offices, residential and retail for clients around the world. Recent notable work includes the Palace of Justice in Salerno, the Hepworth art gallery in Wakeﬁeld West Yorkshire, the Turner contemporary gallery in Kent, and the Rockbund project and art museum in Shanghai.
