S. Lucas wins decorations package for new luxury Knightsbridge hotel
S. Lucas has been appointed to carry out the back of house decorations for the most luxurious new hotel to be built in central London in a very long while. The new Bulgari Hotel & Residences, London is being built in the heart of Knightsbridge by Prime Development, close by Harrods, Harvey Nichols and the designer stores of Brompton Road and Sloane Street. It will occupy a historic position on the site of the former Knightsbridge Palace Hotel, built in 1911 and renamed ‘The Normandie Hotel’ in 1937. S. Lucas is building a strong reputation in the hotel sector and has recently completed projects at the Savoy Hotel, the Brooklands Hotel at the historic motor racing circuit in Surrey, and will start work shortly on Premier Inn’s new flagship hotel at Westfield Stratford City opening later this year in time for the 2012 London Olympics. S. Lucas will be working directly for Prime Development on the new Bulgari Hotel & Residences, London. The construction manager for the development is Sir Robert McAlpine.
