Great Scotland Yard Hotel - London

The project to transform the former Scotland Yard HQ of the Metropolitan Police into a prestigious five-star hotel in London is now complete. The project demanded architectural ironmongery of the highest standards of performance and appearance. 

Leading Architectural Ironmonger John Planck Ltd working in collaboration with Galliard’s in-house design team selected the door hinges from the SIMONSWERK range.

In total over 1700 TECTUS concealed hinges have been installed including the TE340 3D FR, TE640 3D FR and the TE527 3D.

The Grade II-listed building has been converted into a 153 Bedroom luxury hotel by Galliard Construction which will be operated by Hyatt under its Unbound Collection.

The seven-storey building was the original headquarters of the Metropolitan Police. The home secretary at the time, Sir Robert Peel selected the building as the first headquarters for the Met in 1829.

The new hotel features include interior design references to the building’s police and military past through the use of shields, emblems and historic details etched into glass and metalwork.

SIMONSWERK are Europe´s leading Hinge Manufacturer with a history spanning more than 125 years in the manufacture of brass, aluminium and stainless-steel hinges for doors and windows.

The range includes the renowned fully concealed TECTUS hinge range and the popular TRITECH solid brass hinge with concealed bearings. SIMONSWERK hinges have also been fitted in many other hotels throughout Europe including the Ritz and the Savoy.
