The Dixon

Juxtaposing heritage and modernity

The Dixon is one of the most memorable hotels in London. Housed in an historic Grade ll listed building that was previously a magistrates’ court, and extended to provide additional accommodation, the hotel combines its formidable past with the vibrancy and cultural diversity of the Tower Bridge district today.

twenty2 degrees led the interior design project, from the imposing lobby and the court room itself, now reinvented as the bar, to the function rooms and 193 guestrooms above. The design pays wry and witty homage to the great and grim legacy of the building and its neighbourhood while bringing the aesthetic right up to date with refined finishes, a contemporary colour palette and striking collections of bespoke artwork.

The heartbeat of the hotel melds old and new in varying and unexpected compositions.
