Shepherd’s Bush Pavilion Hotel on BD Online
Our art deco inspired hotel featured in the online publication
16th Dec 2014
Ike Ijeh of BD Online has written a wonderful feature on the Shepherd’s Bush Pavilion Hotel, discussing the project from concept through to completion.
”The effect is flamboyantly melodramatic, shamelessly theatrical and, within the context of this gloriously rejuvenated 1920s picture palace, utterly appropriate. The glowing atrium epitoamises the design approach adopted for the entire building – namely, an inventive programme of choreographed architectural cinematography that deploys an assured contemporary performance to restore and re-present the past. The Dorsett may be a plush modern hotel, but within it the joyous, electric spirit of the mid-20th century picture house is more alive than it has been for generations.”
