LC SmartGlass @ the Ultra High-Tech Urban Cocoon, Eccleston Square Hotel London

Date: 26 August 2011
Architect: Woods BagotContractor: Urban FabrikValue: £145,000Date of Completion: July 2011Eccleston Square Hotel is a new, hi-tech, luxury, boutique design hotel bordering Belgravia in the heart of Central London SW1.

Historical on the outside yet timeless on the inside, Eccleston Square Hotel is an elegant fusion of old meets new.

The state of the art hotel was designed by Woods Bagot to facilitate director Olivia Byrne’s vision of uncompromising luxury and technology.

Behind its doors lies an ultra-modern hideaway, an ‘urban cocoon’ with cutting-edge technology in every room. High ceilings and enormous original windows dominate throughout the building.

The design brief centered on creating bright open spaces filled with plenty of light.
SmartGlass Internationals LC SmartGlass was used to create a partition separating bedroom and bathroom in each room. Switchable SmartGlass was the ideal solution to create a bright open space as it not only lets more light into the bathroom but also gives the impression of increased space throughout the entire room.

LC SmartGlass combines the functionality of an opaque wall with the style and lighting of clear glass. With glass being inherently thin, hotel designers are turning ever more toward it to save space and inject style. This clever use of glass ties in with the prevailing trend of hotels pursuing clean, minimalist styles in room design. This latest technology is allowing guests to have more input in the setup of the bathroom, reflecting their personal preferences thus making the bathroom a key feature of the guest experience.

LC SmartGlass is a class A rated safety glass conforming to BS EN 12600 and is rated to IP X7 BS EN 60529. SmartGlass International is delighted to be part of this exciting new project with LC SmartGlass leading the way in hotel bathroom interiors worldwide.
