As a long-time admirer of Tom Dixon’s design it is very exciting to discover that Design Research Studio, the architectural interior design practice under his creative direction, is in charge of the redevelopment of Sea Container’s House into a Mondrian Hotel on the South Bank. The Morgan Group has a track record of trusting designers who, albeit high-profile, haven’t had previous experience in doing hotels, such as Andree Putnam for Morgans Hotel and Phillipe Starck for the Royalton; in this case they were especially attracted to Dixon’s innovative approach to materials. A Mighty Big If opens a season of events and conversations for summer 2013 with Richard Strange in conversation with Richard Wilson in the chapel of The House of St Barnabas. Most of us have probably just noticed this building because of the seriously naff-looking sign which sits somewhat incongruously on top of the Warren Platner designed building, executed in a style that falls somewhere between brutalism and post modernism.


It was originally intended to be a luxury hotel but never made it and instead languished as an office building. Dixon also spoke of combining American service and innovations with British quirkiness, of his intention to ensure that Mondrian London will be a celebration of Anglo-American relationships. American Architect Warren Platner, sadly now a forgotten genius, is probably best known for Windows on the World, the restaurant on top of the Twin Towers.
The severe exterior belies the interior, full of quirky and lovely touches, which Dixon is going to incorporate into the finished design.


Such as the main lobby (or ‘decompression chamber’) which will feature a giant external and internal copper-clad wall inspired by the hull of a ship, running from the outside of the building and leading guests to the entrance hall within in a suitably glamour-laden way.
Building on the extensive metal finishes already present in the building, a network of brass work (brass was a Platner favourite) will run throughout the hotel, feeding out to every corner, edging each bedroom door and eventually morphing into an oversized cocktail bar.
