The Bermondsey Square Hotel, a 90-room property in trendy South London, has unveiled six, brand new terrace rooms on the first floor, all boasting private balconies overlooking the thriving Bermondsey Square and antique market.
The first floor Terrace Rooms have been cleverly conceptualised by design firms Offset Architects and Fileturn. Meanwhile, the private balconies have been individually appointed by final year Architecture students from the University of East London, led by Alex Scott-Whitby of Scott Whitby Studio and mentored by the hotel’s neighbours, Purcell Architects. The students’ brief was to be sympathetic to the hotel’s local history whilst considering the environment, upcycling available materials and capturing the essence of the community.
Accommodation includes Superior rooms, Club rooms and Loft suites which have hosted the A-list likes of Keane and Goldfrapp.
Meanwhile, guests can feel at home with a contemporary British-inspired menu, a pantry area offering home-made cakes, pastries and beverages as well as a communal lounge, melding a sense of familiarity with authentic hospitality.
