From its dazzling location in the West End of London, at the hub of Covent Garden, West End theatres and Trafalgar Square, St. Martins Lane is a dramatic and daring reinvention of the urban resort. Smart, witty and sophisticated, this luxury boutique hotel is a luminous jewel whose glowing yellow glass revolving doors and wildly popular Light Bar reveal Philippe Starck’s brilliant collision of influences - from the modern to the baroque - that suffuses the hotel with energy, vitality and magic.
Entered through improbably tall, luminescent yellow-glass revolving doors, St. Martins Lane’s lobby is a soaring and theatrical space that offers a provocative manipulation of dimension and proportion - a triumph of colour and light.
Bauporte Doors UK LTD was invited to develop the first extremely tall revolving door (in the world) in the Design hotel, in conjunction with architect Philip Starck.
The Bauporte revolving door had to accentuate the entrance with its tall, transparent and impressive yellow look. This yellow look is achieved by applying curved yellow-layered glass in 1 section across its entire height of 4200 mm. The curved glass is made in 1 section from a single sheet of glass. The door leaves are also equipped with yellow-layered glass. The roof is built into the ceiling of the entrance hall and has yellow hanging glass plates above with lighting is installed.
The look is absolutely unique and guests from across the world come to St. Martins Lane hotel. The Bauporte revolving door is a fully automatic door and complies with the BS 7036 standard, the German TUV and the European DIN. We recommend that you visit this hotel and our entrance door in person.
