All 181 rooms and public areas, invite guests to rest, revive and restore, warmly welcomed by 1,300 individual plants, shrubs and trees and more than 200 local and regional plant species thriving throughout the property. At every interior turn, guests encounter works exclusively commissioned from nature-influenced local artists, designed to provoke a sense of closer connection to the venerable landscape of Britain.

Located in the heart of London’s historic Mayfair, the nine-story sustainable sanctuary overlooks the stately trees and verdant lawns of magnificent Green Park and renowned emporia of Bond Street, Berkeley Square and Piccadilly.

1 Hotel Mayfair’s design echoes its nature-inspired mission, by bringing the outdoors in. An unexpected union of sustainability and luxury, involving a host of artisans and craftspeople from the UK and beyond. Opting for reconstruction over new construction, this urban oasis, built to BREEAM Excellent standards, utilised 80% of the existing structure, which was repurposed to minimise adverse environmental impact.

Living green-trellised exterior walls transform former hard surfaces into natural vertical landscapes. A freshly cobbled and pedestrianised previous parking lot creates a harmonious outdoor public space, now gifted to the neighbourhood, where passing Londoners can connect to nature and the surrounding community.

Guestrooms feature living moss walls, timber flooring crafted from fallen British Oak trees and Welsh slate bathroom vanities. More than 200 plant species can be found across the property, from the living walls to the planting beds in the bedrooms.
