The hotel says the refurbishment is being managed by Denis Day of Ashleigh House Developments, with Kravetz working on the banqueting suites and a new ‘senses room’ and Humble Arnold Associates redeveloping the kitchens in a £6 million project.
The hotel claims the ‘senses room’ will be the first of its kind in London. The room, which will accommodate up to 10 people, will have adjustable lighting, colour schemes and décor, which can be adapted to the individual specifications of different guests.
For the banqueting halls, the entrance foyer will feature edge-lit mother-of-pearl glass mirror panels and the entrance floor will feature new marble slabs, with a bronze liquid metal finish.
The ceiling of the Nine Kings Ballroom will feature new coffer detailing while the 18 chandeliers will be retained and refurbished. The Lancaster London says the redesign means ‘the whole banqueting space will be much lighter, making it feel more spacious’.
As part of the refurbishment, £6 million is being spent on transforming the kitchens, in a project led by Humble Arnold Associates design director Stephen Arnold.
