Mint Hotel Tower of London, EC3N

The 583-bedroom hotel, Bennetts Associates' second London hotel for Mint Hotel (formerly City Inn) re-establishes medieval street edges. A courtyard featuring an extensive green wall links the glazed foyer with the external roof terraces. The rooftop 'skylounge' is a separate metallic element sitting above the adjacent rooflines which affords stunning views of the Tower of London and other iconic landmarks. The design incorporates extensive renewable energy provision.
