Architects of Invention create exclusive business and dining destination in London's Mayfair

by Kim Megson | 30 Nov 2015

International studio Architects of Invention have designed the interiors for an exclusive new club in the heart of London’s illustrious Mayfair district, which will feature a restaurant run by Michelin-starred chef Shaun Rankin.

The interiors of 12 Hay Hill, which opened in late September, have been refitted at a cost of £3m (US$4.5m, €4.2m) to create a sophisticated space for entrepreneurs seeking a private social and business environment.

The 1,800sq m (19,300sq ft) space includes a bar and bistro, a ground floor kitchen – run by Rankin – and a brasserie-style dining room open to permanent and temporary members.

Felt partitions, bespoke furniture and vintage chandeliers have been included to provide a touch of old-school styling to the club, contrasting with the modern offices that provide space for members wishing to work at the venue.

Parquet and marble flooring – provided by Listone Giordano and the Marble Ourgantzidis Group respectively – has been used throughout, and works by internationally-renowned artists such as Frank Stella and David Lachapelle line the walls.

The interior design has been overseen by Architects of Invention principal Anton Khmelnitskiy, who has previously worked for Dutch studio MVRDV and British firm Alsop Architects. Khmelnitskiy was also formerly a partner at Foster + Partners.

Mayfair is one of London’s most sought-after destinations for real estate developers. The area is home to the city’s largest concentration of five star hotels, including the Grosvenor House Hotel, Claridge's and The Dorchester.
