The 583-bedroom hotel, Bennetts Associates’ second London hotel for Mint Hotel (now Double Tree by Hilton) re-establishes medieval street edges. A courtyard featuring an extensive green wall links the glazed foyer with the external roof terraces. The rooftop ‘skylounge’ is a separate metallic element sitting above the adjacent roofl ines which aff ords stunning views of the Tower of London and other iconic landmarks. The design incorporates extensive renewable energy provision and was completed in January 2011.
