The new H10 London Waterloo, a landmark four-star 177 bed hotel developed in a key central London location was designed by Macreanor Lavington Architects.

Despite the huge constraints imposed by the junction site, the creative and flexible approach applied is remarkable, the narrow site employs a striking civic composition, the building clearly defined at the base, middle and top. Services include restaurant, bar, a beauty centre and meeting facilities.

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. A ground level cut back provides a generous pedestrian path, activating the street frontage. The resulting overhang shelters the glazed entrance foyer.

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