Program: 4-star hotel with 177 rooms
Client: H10 Hotels
Phase: completed, 2010

H10 London Waterloo is a landmark four-star hotel, developed in a key central London location. The response to this narrow site employs a striking civic composition, clearly defining the base, middle and top of the building. A ground level cut back provides a generous pedestrian path, activating the street frontage. The resulting overhang shelters the glazed entrance foyer.

At 13 storeys, the hotel establishes a strong architectural relationship between Waterloo Road and St Georges Circus. The variegated brickwork provides solidity and permanence, alternating on the south facade where large flush openings and deep brick reveals create dynamic patterns.

Sustainability has been carefully considered with the design achieving 38% renewable energy using an air source heat pump and gas-fired CHP.

Maccreanor Lavington was awarded Hotel and Leisure Architect of the Year at the 2010 Architect of the Year awards for projects including H10 London Waterloo.
