The Grade II listed former Regent Palace Hotel, located just off Regent Street and Piccadilly Circus, was redeveloped to provide a mix of office, retail and restaurant space around a central atrium. This environmentally intelligent building has energy saving technology, a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating and is one of four quadrant blocks undergoing restoration and redevelopment at the southern end of Regent Street.
dormakaba’s contribution to the project
In keeping with the exemplary style of this Grade II listed building, door closers and ironmongery were selected that were both aesthetically pleasing and compliant with the latest legislation. In the public areas the ITS96 concealed closer suited the minimalistic requirements perfectly.
For the lift lobby areas, TS92 cam-action closers were installed with the electro-magnetic hold-open feature to secure fire doors in the open position.
Between the central lobby and cafe area, HSW-G sliding glass wall system with bronze fittings complemented the colouring of the building’s art deco lobby area.
