As one of the world’s most exclusive hotel brands Shangri-La is internationally renowned for its approach to service and hospitality. The Shard is home to the brand’s first UK hotel, featuring 202 guestrooms, 3 food and beverage offerings, riverfacing event spaces, a 24-hour gym, luxury spa and London’s highest infinity pool. Located on levels 34 to 52, the hotel provides unrivalled views across the city. Hospitality specialist designers PERSPECTIVE London were appointed as Executive Architects and worked to realise and deliver this iconic project on site from May 2011.
Speaking of the project Perspective London’s founding director Dexter Moren said, “The Shard is undoubtedly one of London’s most iconic buildings and it has been both a privilege and challenge to work on the delivery of a hotel in a building of such status, particularly working with a brand as prestigious as Shangri-La on their first London development.” The arrival of the Shangri-La Hotel at The Shard is a key milestone for the London hotel market and represents the continued strength of the UK hotel construction sector.
