Located at the top of the Battersea Roof Gardens building designed by architects Foster + Partners, the new art-otel London will offer visitors just that.
The 160 plus -bedroom hotel will feature a stunning Roof Garden designed by the New York High Line team, James Corner Field Operations. This will include an outdoor rooftop pool and bar overlooking the chimneys of the Grade II listed Battersea Power Station. Beneath this, a restaurant and double height bar with views across the London skyline has been planned. The hotel will also be home to a public art gallery.
art’otel is a collection of contemporary hotels across Europe and is part of PPHE Hotel Group. This will be the brand’s first to launch in the capital when it opens in 2019.
‘The selection process to find the right brand and operator was a very competitive and thorough one, involving the leading hotel brands from around the world,’ Rob Tincknell, CEO of Battersea Power Station Development Company commented. ‘art’otel was a standout winner, a brand unlike anything we have seen in London to date, and it is particularly fitting for it to have art at the very heart of the brand and the hotel itself. I am confident that together with art’otel we will deliver a beyond expectations hotel.’
The hotel is part of the phase 3 regeneration led by Gehry Partners and Foster + Partners. The £8 million project also includes the development of 1,300 residential homes, a new pedestrian high street lined with shops and restaurants known as The Electric Boulevard, a new public park and community hub known as The Prospect and a new London Underground Station.
