Philippe Starck St Martins Lane Hotel

St Martins Lane Hotel is a dramatic and daring evolution on English luxury. This boutique hotel retains all the youthful, unexpected charm of a London hideaway, at the very heart of the art-loving, energetic West End. The Hotel is truly a hidden gem.  The newly renovated lobby welcomes guests into high-concept design, with the sophistication of a modern museum and the joy of a carnival light show. The soaring and theatrical space, a reinterpretation of  Philippe Starck's original lobby play with color, proportion, and movement in a way that energizes and inspires active self-expression  

























“ I dream of a new age of curiosity. We have the technical means for it; the desire is there; the things to be known are infinite; the people who can employ themselves at this task exist. Why do we suffer? From too little: from channels that are too narrow, skimpy, quasi-monopolistic, insufficient. There is no point in adopting a quasi- protectionist attitude, to prevent 'bad' information from invading and suffocating the 'good'. Rather, we must simply multiply the paths and the possibilities of comings and goings."

Philosopher Michel Foucault
