I was perusing Yatzer yesterday and came across these amazing images and article on Town Hall Hotel. It is the stunning new boutique hotel to hit London's East end and it has me dying to head back to the land of tea & crumpets for a visit.
Set in the old Bethnal Green Town Hall, Rare architects married the existing Edwardian building with a new extension enveloped in a lazer cut, powder coated aluminum. The interior is no different with all the original architectural features meticulously restored and new contemporary features installed. There are glass walls, and minimalist bathrooms & bedrooms suites floating in Edwardian panelled rooms. This hotel is really one for the books and the photos leave me wanting more. I love love love the integration of old and new and the selection of furniture used throughout. What do you think? Is the contrast between the original building and the new renovation too extreme?
