Interior design consultancy Cabinet Alberto Pinto has worked with architect ReardonSmith on a redevelopment of London hotel The Lanesborough.
The 18-month renovation of the Grade II*-listed building saw it taken totally back to its shell and transformed.
Craftsmen including embroiderers, crystal specialists, cabinet-makers, bronzers and lacquerers were used to develop detailing.
The hotel says more than 300 people were involved in the day-to-day transformation of the hotel’s 93 rooms. There was more than 2,000 hours of stencilling in the public areas of the hotel as well as 5,500 original stencils showcased throughout guest rooms and within The Library Bar.
In addition, 2,100 books of gold leaf were used to dress the ceilings of public areas and guest rooms, reimagining the Regency period and reflecting the heritage of the building.
