The new Riva Hotel: 'wrapped in a unifying glass envelope'

Foster + Partners’ design for a new five-star hotel on Bath Road, close to Heathrow Airport has been approved by the Mayor of London. The only five-star hotel in the area, it will offer a range of services, including the most extensive conference facilities of any London hotel, to serve the local community and businesses, as well as passengers using Heathrow.


The hotel, developed by Riva Properties is characterised by a distinctive layered glass shell, which floods the public spaces with daylight and contributes to a highly efficient energy strategy. Articulated as a 13-storey structure, several levels are sunk into the ground, keeping the building’s profile low in response to the immediate surroundings.
