The Londoner is described by its owner, Edwardian Hotels London, as the world’s first ‘super boutique’ hotel. It is a remarkable new £500 million, 5-star luxury boutique hotel, located in the heart of London’s Leicester Square, with six of its sixteen storeys extending over 30m underground. The Londoner combines the very best aspects of a luxury boutique hotel with a range of bespoke meetings and events spaces.
Equally impressive is its award-winning AV installation, designed, supplied and installed by Visual Systems (part of the Myriad Audio Visual Group and CP Partnership), with ARUP acting as consultants for the client.
To equip the hotel’s Ballroom - a state-of the-art event space and the largest pillarless ballroom in London's West End - Visual Systems turned to the Martin by HARMAN lighting catalogue for a class-leading event lighting system, featuring Martin ERA Series, MAC Aura Series and ELP Series. All Martin products were supplied by Martin’s UK distributor Sound Technology Ltd.
“We’ve operated in the hospitality sector for over 35 years, but this is by far and away the most impressive of projects.” commented Ray Sappal, Project Director, Visual Systems Ltd. “The client wanted a state-of-the-art facility. They wanted the AV to be discrete with the latest Audio-Visual hardware available. They also wanted the ballroom to be the best in the country.”
