    Sans Souci Hotel

    International Hotel Awards | Best Hotel & Five Star Interior.

    More

    Archer Humphryes designed the opulent interior of Sans Souci, a 63-room luxury hotel created within a 19th century building in Vienna’s Museum Quarter.

    The project draws on the city’s glorious decorative and artistic heritage to create a rich but relaxing environment throughout both public areas and three floors of residences at the top of the building. Archer Humphryes designed the lobby, bar, restaurant, private dining room, spa, and eight residences, which include a sixth floor penthouse with panoramic views across the city.

    Guests enter through a 20-metre-long gallery lined with classical muses and marble mosaic flooring. This leads to a circular lobby inspired by the Pantheon in Rome, top lit and laid out on a brightly patterned marble floor. The bar is lined in gilded panelling and includes a combination of contemporary bespoke and antique furniture. The restaurant is quieter in tone, designed to display the owner’s collection of classic 20th century modern art.

    Great Northern Hotel

    2014 Condé Nast | Best New or Back on the Scene Hotel

    More

    Archer Humphryes has redesigned the world’s first purpose built railway terminus hotel - the Great Northern at King’s Cross, London.

    The practice has created a 91-bedroom boutique hotel at the Grade II listed building, which was originally designed by Lewis Cubitt in 1854. The new hotel evokes the style and glamour of the first railway age, emphasising the historic character of the building while at the same time providing an elegant, contemporary design.

    The bedrooms have been designed in three categories using high quality, traditional materials. A typical Cubitt bedroom enjoys unusual ceiling heights, spacious dimensions and the historic detail of the building. Smaller Couchette rooms are inspired by railway sleeping cars, while the Wainscot attic rooms are lined in European walnut panelling with a deep plum palette. The hotel also contains the reception, GNH bar, Plumb + Spilt Milk restaurant and a small retail area in addition to the bedrooms.

    Chiltern Firehouse

    André Balazs' | First Luxury Boutique Hotel in London.

    More

    Archer Humphryes has converted a 19th century Gothic fire station in London’s Manchester Square into a boutique hotel for hotelier André Balazs.

    The conversion includes the reinstatement of the original carved stone façade – removed in the 1960s - and the restoration and sensitive extension of the existing Grade II listed building. The resulting ensemble is designed to enhance the dynamic composition and romantic silhouette of the original. The xx-bed hotel includes a restaurant housed in the former appliance shed and a new five-storey annex with a ground floor Conservatory bar. The hotel, which has become a popular celebrity hang-out, was the winner of the Hotels & Hospitality category of the 2014 New London Architecture Award.
