Planning sought for new neighbour to the now iconic event space 

AEG Europe and architects Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands have submitted proposals to the London Borough of Greenwich for a proposed four star 450-bed hotel and adjoining serviced apartments, focused around a 3,000 sq m special event space with a spectacular triple-height reception pavilion adjacent to The O2.

Situated on the north western tip of the Greenwich Peninsula, the hotel takes The O2 as backdrop; the strong and carefully composed massing of the scheme arranges the primary components into a tight collection of objects, maintaining visual permeability to The O2 from western and southern approaches while expressing the individual functions of the building. The prominent triple-height reception space is raised above ground, maximizing the spectacular views across the River Thames towards Canary Wharf and The City. Its transparency contrasts with the strong vertical expression of the hotel’s anodised aluminum and glass curtain walling façade. A 40 by 75m clear-span ballroom is set to be the largest bespoke space of its kind in London.
