The Syon Park Waldorf Astoria Hotel designed by Ettwein Bridges Architects is located in London, United Kingdom. The site selected for the hotel is in the corner of the historic Grade 1 Listed Parkland, much of which was laid out by Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown in the 1750s. The centrepiece of the estate is Syon House itself, renowned for the Robert Adam interiors, completed in 1764, and one of the most important Great Houses of England. The design and layout of the building breaks with conventional of hotel design.
By breaking down the building mass into smaller elements, a low but varied skyline profile has been achieved which never intrudes into the parkland beyond. The building has six connected linear wings, each with a pitched roof and high open gables. One of these creates a prominent portico entrance to the double-height reception lounge. The tallest wing contains a spa, pool and conference rooms, including a banqueting/conference hall seating up to 500 people.
