PPHE to open London’s first Art’otel at Battersea Power Station

The 164-bedroom hotel will feature a new skyline destination restaurant and bar, rooftop swimming pool, as well as a gym, spa, event facilities, a Grand Café and Art Gallery

PPHE has unveiled the first images of London’s first Art’otel ahead of its opening at Battersea Power Station later this year.

Spanish artist and designer, Jaime Hayon, has been appointed as the interior designer and Signature Artist for this art-inspired, boutique lifestyle hotel.

The first Art’otel to open in the UK will be located within Battersea Roof Gardens, a new building designed by Foster + Partners forming a key part of Electric Boulevard, a collection of buildings comprising homes, offices and a new pedestrianised high street which sits to the south of the Power Station.

The 164-bedroom hotel will feature a new skyline destination restaurant and bar, rooftop swimming pool, as well as a gym, spa, event facilities, a Grand Café and Art Gallery. Progress on the hotel’s construction is nearing completion, with the guest rooms, bar and restaurant now being fitted out.

Jaime Hayon, founder of Hayon Studio, said: “I was very excited at the opportunity to develop the interior design for a London hotel project at Battersea Power Station, which is set to become a new hub for art and creativity.

“The leading role of art at Art’otel London Battersea Power Station makes this a unique prospect to explore the interaction between art, product and interior design and I look forward to creating something truly special in this iconic central London location.”

Boris Ivesha, president and CEO, PPHE Hotel Group, added: “Jaime Hayon’s diverse expertise made him an obvious choice when selecting a designer for this exciting new hospitality and arts venue which sits at the heart of a new cultural quarter for London.

“Hayon is an exciting, internationally acclaimed artist whose designs sit outside of the typical hospitality mould, reflecting the distinctive energy of the Art’otel brand. His vision will perfectly complement the architecture of Foster + Partners, making this a centre of design excellence.”
