One Hundred Shoreditch Shoreditch, London 2019–2022

The remodelling of London’s former Ace Hotel on Shoreditch High Street, the skilfully refurbished and reconfigured hotel reflects the lively cultural and commercial stature of the area. The street facing elevations of One Hundred Shoreditch were improved and the organisation of some of the building’s key spaces were revisited, thereby improving the experience of both guests and staff.

    The principal elevation of the existing building is articulated by incorporating columns of oriel (bay) windows

    Rising through four storeys, the effect of the oriel windows is to give the building a vertical instead of its original horizontal emphasis

    The rooms offer guests spaces to sit with views up and down this busy arterial road - as well as across, on higher floors, to the Barbican and St Paul’s Cathedral
