Nobu Hotel London Portman Square

Make Architects has unveiled its facelift for Marylebone’s Portman Hotel where London’s latest 5-star Nobu hotel and restaurant opened on 3rd December 2020.

Make’s team has reinvented the existing hotel, replacing the dark, single-storey entrance lobby with a sweeping new double-height entrance that is flooded with light.

Make also reconfigured the interior architecture of the ground and first floors, working in conjunction with interior designer David Collins Studio to shape the spaces. Make also completed the interior design for the guestrooms and suites.

Make interior designer Alice Simmons commented: “We really wanted to merge the Japanese style synonymous with Nobu, with a sense of its West London location. As such, we’ve carefully selected materials and are using timber panelling that nods to Japanese heritage, yet uses a pale English oak, for sliding doors and seamless joinery, and have carefully chosen Japanese-influenced artwork. It’s a holistic approach to design which really cements the superb quality of the project.”

“It’s all about imbuing a sense of calm and warmth, and we’ve instilled this in every detail, from the leather stitching of the headboard to the materiality of the timber wardrobes that act as a transition space into the bedroom. Bathrooms have been designed to give a sense of the calm, luxurious ritual of bathing, with walk-in showers, marble ceramics and bespoke vanity units. The space and light that are a key part of our interior architecture have been drawn through to the bedrooms."
