MEGA MARBLE - Marble Glamour At The New Savoy Hotel

London’s iconic Savoy hotel has just reopened after 3 years and an extensive £220 million refurbishment. Mega Marble sourced, fabricated and installed the magnificent marble and stonework for this elegant space.

Mega Marble Director Rafi Mimoni notes ‘There was great satisfaction in this job. The designers utilised some beautiful materials to amazing effect’.

The famous Strand Lobby is considered the heart of the hotel. This dramatic area has been renewed to its former glory with a newly laid, intricate floor of black and white marble tiles, with a Nero Marquina border detail. The skill of the Mega Marble stone masons is shown in the 6 white Carrara marble pillars, each one sitting atop a fielded panel base of Nero Marquina, as well as in the intricately fabricated marble architraves and door linings. The grandeur of the Lobby is continued under a 4 metre arch of Carrara marble leading down stairs, with marble paneling in the same material, through to The Upper Thames Lounge.

Construction of the white archway was fixed using specially designed fixings to follow the exact curvature of the underlying brick arch whilst supporting the weight of the stone.

Framing the doorway leading from the Upper Thames Lounge to the cloakroom areas is a stone architrave adorned with a curved feature. This was created out of a solid block of marble that was hollowed out and shaped in order to reduce the fixing weight whilst retaining the natural beauty of the stone.

Mega Marble was involved in all aspects of the stone work at the Savoy, working closely with the Designers in selecting each of the significant blocks and slabs of stone from suppliers in Italy and Spain This included selection of the fabulous Labradorite Madagascar slabs that were used to create the bar top in the Beaufort Bar where the clever lighting now reflects the pearl like translucence emanating from a bed of sea-blue stone.

While the Lobby design remained true to the hotel’s rich history, the building work had to compensate for the odd eccentricities of the original building’s structure. In 1903 the Savoy was extended, but the building was not built to today’s exacting standards of structural accuracy or safety. The Lobby is not straight but twists unevenly resulting in a discrepancy along its length of more than 300ml. To ensure that the black and white marble tiles appear straight from every angle, every stone was individually cut at the Mega Marble factory in Park Royal with the final adjustments carried out by hand on site.

Rafi says he loves the feel of the Savoy “As you step into the Savoy the feeling is akin to the warm welcome you would have experience when visiting a grand English home in the 1920’s”

Mega Marble’s work continues through the Thames Lounge to the famous Riverside Restaurant. The refurbishment is distinctly art deco and Mega Marble installed sparkling walls in Star Galaxy granite and diamond patterned floors in Crema Marfil and Star Galaxy granite.

Mega Marble is proud to produce work of this quality and scale at its factory here in England. ‘People say manufacturing in England is doomed, we are living proof that it is not ! Our factory operates to the highest standards and we have been producing work for some of the most prestigious projects in the UK for over 15 years including Westfield Shopping Centre, Sofitel Hotel Terminal 5, The Langham Hotel, Park Plaza Westminster Bridge, and the Mandarin Oriental Hotel’ says the founding Director of Mega Marble.

Mega Marble’s current projects include work on the Spa, Signature Restaurant and Bassoon Bar at the new Corinthia Hotel, the entrance foyer at One Hyde Park and the new Westfield Shopping Centre in Stratford due to open in 2011 with amazing vistas over the Olympic Park. Mega Marble is also working on a number of high end residential properties.
