ReardonSmith, as hotel specialist architect, is contributing to one of the most prestigious hotel projects in Europe, acting for Qatari Diar, the owners of 30 Grosvenor Square which is the recently vacated American Embassy in London. Our role is to facilitate the conversion of the building into a world-class luxury hotel. Working in collaboration with Lead Architect, David Chipperfield Architects, we are providing a range of expert advice and will, eventually, take on the role of Executive Architect to oversee the successful implementation of the project on-site

The current plan is to create a 137-guestroom hotel with a number of restaurants & bars, a luxury spa, a ballroom and retail. The significant architectural characteristics of the building, completed in 1960, will be retained and enhanced and the removal of the existing security barriers will provide an opportunity to achieve a vibrant and dramatically transformed public realm in this imposing Mayfair square.
