Contract Value: £60,000,000 [combined]
Completion: 2012 - 2016
Studio Anyo delivered for CitizenM and Concrete (brand and interior concept) on the site phase of this 370 room, city centre hotel acting as their European flagship hotel. Planning for the site was achieved in close consultation with English Heritage and The Tower of London, as it lies within the World Heritage Site. There is also a listed ancient monument, the Roman Wall, within the footprint of the project. Following significant local opposition, the sympathetic hotel design aims to create a positive addition to the prestigious backdrop.
The scheme was developed with consideration of the World Heritage Site listing and was designed to integrate within Trinity Square’s townscape,
as well as to work harmoniously with the numerous historical assets within the site’s surroundings.
The site design phase has involved the creation of a complex basement, connecting two lifts to the Tower of London tube station.
Through our partnership with CitizenM, James Walsh has been advising on citizenM’s Shoreditch development for a number of years as lead architect at SR.
This scheme is located in the heart of the Shoreditch Village development. It will include a 216 bed hotel and 8 residential units with retail and public realm works at ground floor level. In addition James worked on the Bankside citizenM whilst at SR.
