Mondrian London at Sea Containers
Seductive and striking, the Sea Containers London, formerly the Mondrian London, brings bold new energy to London, blending the style and sophistication of the boutique brand with Southbank’s eclectic vibe. Situated on the banks of the River Thames in the famed Sea Containers building, Sea Containers London uniquely offers river view balcony suites directly on the Thames. Working with Design Research Studio under the creative direction of renowned British designer Tom Dixon, the hotel captures the essence of the original building, exuding 1920s cruise ship glamour integrated with the modern twists and sophisticated design.
History of Mondrian London at Sea Containers
Sea Containers House was designed by noted American Modernist architect Warren Platner in 1974 as a luxury hotel. However, during construction, its location near the City of London led to the decision to complete it instead as office space. It opened in 1978 and took its name from the former long-term tenant, Sea Containers.
In spring 2011, a process began to gain planning permission for an extensive internal and external refurbishment of Sea Containers House. The east and west wings, which face the Thames, remained offices, with companies within global communications group WPP moving in February 2016. The south wing was renovated as the Mondrian Hotel London, which opened on September 30, 2014, bringing at least part of the building back to its original intended use. The hotel became independent and was renamed Sea Containers London Hotel on January 15, 2019
