A luxury revitalisation project is underway in London: The Emory, an elegant hotel in the centre of the city, is currently undergoing a design revival.
Originally designed by the late Richard Rogers and Ivan Harbour of the architectural firm RSHP, the hotel sets new standards for contemporary design. With its distinctive 'sails' rising above the treetops of Hyde Park, The Emory offers 60 exceptional suites.
