Hotel Rafayel on the Left Bank, Falcon Wharf, Battersea

Architect: Latis Design.

Client: Hotel Rafayel.  M&E: Eng Design

London’s first five star “Eco-Hotel” with energy consumption around 70% less than typical for similar sized hotels, this has been voted one of London’s top 10 boutique hotels.  Housed in the lower floors of the Falcon Wharf tower originally intended as office floors, with existing flats above and the West London Heliport literally outside the window, there were numerous acoustic challenges.
