9781907893148: Savoy - The Restoration

Originally a Victorian hotel, The Savoy enjoyed a resurgence of fame during the 1920s with both major art deco redecoration, and guests as varied as Noel Coward, Igor Stravinsky, Josephine Baker and George Gershwin. The book traces the work through four periods of the restoration project. An opening section documents the early days - stripping out, and in many instances exposing original detail. The two following sections are devoted to the painstaking structural restoration and its progression into the new designs. The final section covers the finishing touches of decoration and furnishing. Building on her previous experience with such projects, Siobhan initially proceeded more by intuition than design. However, she soon became captivated by the hotel's fifth-floor River Suites with their varied views across the Thames. Revisiting these rooms many times in the course of more than 100 visits to the hotel, she developed the concept of returning and remaking images, which she then expanded to embrace to other areas in the building. This approach also unconsciously reflects the many views and insights that the now-reopened hotel's customers observe daily - depending on the season in which they visit, the length of their stay, the areas that they frequent and whether it is their first visit or one of many.
