Galvin at Windows Bar
Friday 07 Jun 2013
The brief given to Central Design Studio was to create a destination bar in its own right, making better use of the space and the views over London. Galvin at Windows is located on the 28th floor of the London Hilton on Park Lane, overlooking Hyde Park and surrounded by light. Inspired by this unique location, the design concept looks to the capture of light: photography and cinematography, with references to the 1930s and the Golden Age.
The room has been re-orientated to maximise on the view, with a central seating feature and window banquettes that ‘frame' Hyde Park. A new larger bar has been created by reclaiming redundant back of house space, and been detailed with St Laurent marble and mother of pearl.
The furniture is all bespoke, and a unique ‘Galvin' chair has been developed with General Manager, Fred Sirieix, and designers Central Design Studio.
