With their London property, Set is creating a 159-room luxury hotel out of the former cafe which will also house an Akasha Holistic Wellbeing Centre (including a pool, gym, spa, yoga and meditation studios) along with restaurants, bars and the famous Grill Room and Domino Room.
The nearly four-year renovation process has been overseen by David Chipperfield Architects and it has incorporated some modern architecture along the backside of the hotel. The retail space at the bottom of the hotel will even include a new outpost of Whole Foods, yet the public rooms of the original building remain.
Unfortunately, we don't have any interior shots or renderings yet so you'll just have to make do with the construction snaps from late February.
Meanwhile, the opening date and the room rates are still TBD. But if the Whole Foods sign is an indicator, this place could be open by late May. The term "luxury hotel" however has us thinking around 300GBP a night. Sigh.
