In the heart of bustling Soho and just a couple of blocks from Mayfair, Firmdale Hotels will open its eighth London property in June 2014. Owners Tim and Kit Kemp have designed Ham Yard with a distinctly urban village feel. The hotel revolves around a unique tree-filled garden, its centrepiece being a specially commissioned bronze sculpture by Tony Cragg.
Alongside the hotel’s 90 individually designed bedrooms and suites are 24 residential apartments, 13 personally selected retail stores and an airy restaurant and bar with outdoor dining and drinking. There is a sumptuous drawing room and library as well as the Soholistic Spa and Gym, 176 seat theatre, several spacious private dining and event rooms including a 50’s style bowling alley. For hotel guests there is a rooftop garden with sweeping views of the London skyline.
Interiors will be beautifully designed by Kit Kemp in her award-winning luxurious, modern British style for which her innovative, exciting mix of colour, pattern, texture and art is world renowned.
