Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park has debuted its penthouse suite designed by Joyce Wang Studio, the final stage of the hotel’s comprehensive renovation.
Two interconnecting suites, the Mandarin and the Oriental, together form a three-bed penthouse spanning the entire length of the ninth floor, forming one of the most expansive penthouse suites in London. Five private alfresco terraces wrap around the entire perimeter of the hotel and provide panoramic views across the London skyline.
Joyce Wang Studio created a design aesthetic inspired by the 20th century Golden Age of travelling, with one-off pieces featuring Art Deco detailing and park-inspired botanical textures and colours.
‘The Mandarin Oriental, Hyde Park, is a landmark for luxury, to work on a building of significant heritage in a city I hold very dear has been incredible. Our design for the Mandarin Oriental is as much a tribute to the building’s illustrious past as it is a personal vision to embrace the future of the hotel’, said Joyce.
Other features include cork wallpaper brushed with silver leaf, said to reference the bark on trees in Hyde Park; as well as the use of natural wood floors, stone surfaces, and a palette of soft pastel tones within the custom carpets, curtains and soft furnishings. Referencing the Mandarin Oriental’s historic connections with the royal family, Joyce designed bespoke light fittings reminiscent of the shapes set within the Crown Jewels.
A walk-in wardrobe off the master-bedroom flows through sliding doors into a spacious bathroom suite, fitted with a free-standing marble soaking tub and shower. A second bedroom with two beds, balcony access and an en-suite bathroom follows the blueprint of the residential space.
