Chorus 42 Acoustic Rated Doorsets installed at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel, London
A Victorian masterpiece restored… Sir John Betjeman called this Gothic treasure “too beautiful and too romantic to survive” in a world of tower blocks and concrete. After years of devoted restoration, the St Pancras Renaissance London Hotel is being hailed as the city’s most romantic building. This London 5-star hotel features glorious Gothic Revival metalwork, gold leaf ceilings, hand-stenciled wall designs – and the grand staircase are as dazzling as the day Queen Victoria opened the hotel in 1873. Designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott to receive travellers through St Pancras Station, the former Midland Grand Hotel offered its guests a world of grandeur, luxury and fantasy behind its fairytale red facade.
Innovations such as ascending rooms (elevators) and revolving doors heightened the sense of awe. In 2011, the doors of his luxury hotel in London are spinning again, sweeping guests into a world where modern amenities mingle with the extravagance of rail’s golden age.
Over 250 of Huet’s Chorus 42 acoustic rated doorsets have been installed for the hotel rooms. Featuring frames and door leafs of tinted and varnished American White Oak and fitted with electromagnetic locks, the Chorus 42 is a natural partner for the stunning interiors of the St Pancras Renaissance – truly one of London’s architectural icons.
