High Road House in London Gets a Revamp


High Road House in London Gets a Revamp

October 6, 2014

We’ve been longtime fans of High Road House, a London hotel and members’ club (it’s part of the Soho House group), so when we noticed that it had recently been overhauled by Alexander Waterworth Interiors, we took note. Located on the site of the historic Fouberts Hotel, in Chiswick, West London, High Road House opened in 2006 with a whitewashed, color-accented interior by Ilse Crawford. The team at Alexander Waterworth has taken it in a moodier direction, with a midcentury vibe and an art collection featuring works by London artists. 

Club Bar

Above: “The brass detailing adds a refined element to the design,” according to the team at Alexander Waterworth.

Club Rooms

Above: The team sourced many of the midcentury pieces from Mar-Den, a London purveyor of 20th-century furniture.

Above: On display: The High Road House art collection features works by Elizabeth Price, Ryan Gander, Mark Wallinger, and emerging British artists.

Above: “Velvet upholstery and traditional rugs keep the atmosphere warm,” according to the designers.

Tiny Room

Small Room
