The Park Suite retains the quintessential British roots the Stafford are known for and Rosendale Design employed British brands to help root the new design. Due to the hotel’s close proximity to St. James Park and Green Park, a floral concept was employed.
The design brief was to reimagine the main house rooms at the hotel, taking into the next chapter of the hotel’s fabled history. The client team were keen to see how they could better utilise smaller rooms without losing too many ‘keys’. The Stafford is renowned with North American and International guests and gives its clientele a quintessential British experience. Retaining these roots were of paramount importance.
The fact that this was originally 2 small rooms and were only intended to be redecorated until Rosendale Design carried out an architectural survey and found the possibility to take 2 smaller rooms and turn them into a statement suite, was a great surprise to the client team. This coupled with the fact that one of the rooms overlooked a sprawling un-utilised mansard roof, Rosendale proposed to make structural changes to allow the roof top become a terrace with unparalleled views across the London skyline towards the London Eye.
The fact that the suite is essentially a maisonette gives the hotel flexibility to hire out the bedroom below separately from the lounge room and terrace above. The terrace and lounge can thus be hired for private events without the need for the bedroom, providing the hotel with a secondary income.
The design concept is based upon the royal parks that sit adjacent to the hotel, so the new suite really celebrates its setting. The hotel originally built as a townhouse, it inherently, will always have a historic characteristic that embodies what the hotel uses as an ethos, a home away from home’.
All the coffee tables, sideboard units, the feature tub chairs and fitted joinery were built bespoke by British Craftsmen. The pendant in the lounge was again built bespoke by a local artisan.
