Overview

Sea Containers House is a 224,000sq ft office and leisure building in London SE1.

Mondrian London at Sea Containers opened here in September 2014. The hotel has a rooftop bar in a glass box structure with outdoor terrace, featuring panoramic views over London.

The interiors in 2014 were designed by British designer Tom Dixon, who wanted to capture the essence of the original building, exuding 1920s cruise ship glamour.

HISTORY
Sea Containers House was originally built as a hotel but became an office building in the mid-1980s.

In 2014 the extensive external and internal refurbishment of Sea Containers House was completed, including refurbished office spaces and a new, Grade-A modern office building, a high-end 356-bedroom lifestyle destination hotel as well as restaurants and cafés along the River Walkway to reinvigorate the local area.

The development that was completed in 2014 revitalised and opened up public areas around the building, including the River Walkway, and a new route will be created between the River Walkway and Upper Ground on the west side of Sea Containers House.

The refurbished Sea Containers House and new office building creates employment space for around 2,800 new jobs in the office space, hotel, restaurants, cafés and rooftop bar.

History
2012 work starts on redevelopment which completes in 2014.

The original building was designed by Warren Platner.
