Bulgari Hotel in London
A perfect expression of the Bulgari aesthetic of timeless glamour in the heart of Knightsbridge.
Innovative artistry and a lavish use of precious marble and silver blend harmoniously, exuding an understated elegance. The quality of the service, magnificent elements such as the spa, pool and private screening room, and the distinguished location beside Harrods and Hyde Park all contribute to an uncompromising sense of excellence.
The first new luxury hotel to be created in London for 40 years, every element is an authentic expression of the Bulgari aesthetic. The architectural and design studio of Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel and Partners created the sleek architecture and refined interiors for a fluent, congruent appearance, together with a selection of rich furnishings and textiles made exclusively for the hotel. The contemporary design concept concurs with Bulgari’s silversmith origins and Britain’s noble manufacturing traditions: silver forms the unifying theme. Details include custom-made silk curtains that feature silver patterns derived from an 1800s silver brooch by Sotirio Bulgari, and the spectacular handcrafted solid silver chandeliers, which dominate the Ballroom and are set to become the most impressive pair of silverware pieces made this century. The design is complemented by state of the art technology and many sustainable features.
