  • Gordon Ramsay at The St. Regis Doha

    Rockwell Group Europe has designed Gordon Ramsay and Opal by Gordon Ramsay—two of ten restaurants at The St. Regis Doha—making the luxury resort a top culinary destination in Qatar.

    Modeled after an elegant, sprawling English manor, the restaurants reinterpret classical elements with a modern twist, featuring a palette of ivory whites and grays accented by pops of orange. Guests enter through a gazebo enclosed with printed screen fabrics depicting a British contemporary landscape to arrive at the Bar Lounge, located in an indoor conservatory. From here, two grand doors provide entry into the Formal Dining Room, which features custom-made crystal chandeliers and is anchored by a large marble fireplace. Guests will also discover a private dining room with a library lounge just outside housing books and art pieces; a wine cellar with a vast collection of wines from all over the world and a wine tasting table; and a raw bar featuring an elegant display cabinet made of calacatta marble, zebrano wood, and bronze metal. A pizza bar marks guests’ arrival at Opal by Gordon Ramsay, a more casual dining experience. Boasting panoramic views of the shimmering Arabian Gulf, the restaurant offers indoor or outdoor dining on a canopied terrace.

  • Harbour Bar

    At the Harbour Bar, located within the world-famous Taj Mahal Palace & Tower Hotel in Mumbai, echoes of Art Deco, India’s rich history, and contemporary luxury are expressed through the furniture and finishes of this restored, beloved establishment. A solid carved mass of white marble forms the center bar, while an inviting glow emanates from the cut-glass back bar. Two existing windows that were uncovered during the renovation now overlook the harbour and buzzing Apollo Bunder Road. Throughout, oversized carved wood pieces, thick-pile rugs, tall lantern-like light fixtures, and leather-upholstered seating create an intimate, special setting that appeals to Mumbai’s up-and-coming generation of movers and shakers.

  • Juana Manso Mixed-Use Complex

    Rockwell Group Europe is proud to present this 860,000-square-foot two-building complex in the Puerto Madero district of downtown Buenos Aires, one of the city’s fastest-growing and most sophisticated areas. Surrounded by parks and a breathtaking waterfront, the first three levels of the glass-enclosed structures are occupied by a high-end retail center, along with gourmet markets and restaurants offering multiple al fresco dining options. Inside the 175,000-square-foot retailarea, overscale skylights and windows create a light-filled and convivial shopping experience. Above the mall, two six–level buildings each provide approximately 320,000 square feet of office space. Both buildings are topped by a curvilinear white roof that pays tribute to the nearby iconic bridge designed by Santiago Calatrava.

  • Le Méridien

    The deep-rooted, vibrant history and culture of Oran, Algeria’s northwestern Mediterranean coast, inspired Rockwell Group Europe’s design for this ground-up Le Méridien. The property features a vast three-level glass box lobby that rises up from pools of water at the base of the hotel tower. Inside, abstract motifs cover the glass shell, while two 40-foot-tall lantern-like tents serve as lounge space for travellers and dramatically announce the entrance to the hotel. The “library box” includes works by the “Le Méridien 100,” a distinctive collection of artists, thinkers, and designers that have all inspired the redefined Le Méridien brand. Among the hotel’s three restaurants is Latest Recipe, an interactive, open kitchen featuring cuisines from around the world and offering spectacular views of the Mediterranean. The hotel also boasts an outdoor seating area surrounded by reflecting pools; an 8,600-square-foot spa; and two presidential suites among the 300 guest rooms.

  • The Westin Palace, Madrid

    Select public spaces at the regal Westin Palace, Madrid—including the rotunda lobby and lounge as well as four meeting rooms—have undergone a thoughtful update by Rockwell Group Europe. A dazzling stained-glass dome called La Cupola illuminates the redesigned rotunda lobby and lounge space below, now adorned with crystal lamps featuring gray silk shades on each table, armchairs and sofas reupholstered in Sanderson’s 1950’s-inspired cut velvet in jewel-toned greens, reds, and silvers, and a custom floral-patterned carpet that echoes the lush vegetation depicted on the dome. In the hotel’s four meeting rooms, seating has been reupholstered in Jim Thompson’s Metallic Shell, a fabric designed by Rockwell Group. The rooms have also been repainted—three off-white, one red, all accented by metallic gray and champagne moldings—the latter embellished with wall texts by Spanish writer Julio Camba, uniquely expressing the local culture and history.

  • W Paris-Opéra

    Rockwell Group Europe teamed up with Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide to design the W Paris-Opéra, W Hotels’ debut in France. The hotel occupies an elegant 1870s Haussmann-era building located across the street from the famous Opéra Garnier. Taking inspiration from New York’s energy, where the W brand began in 1998, and Paris, the “City of Light,” Rockwell Group Europe has infused the new W Hotel with illumination and color. An oversized, undulating wall of light—“The Spark”—is the central design feature that defines the building from both the inside and the street as it weaves throughout corridors, a DJ booth, martini bar, and guestrooms. This programmable wall of light can transform based on season, event, or time of day to create a festive and celebratory atmosphere.

    Historic elements throughout the hotel’s building, including ornamented columns, vaulted ceilings, and decorated doors, have been redefined to create a dialogue and contrast between the old world and contemporary elements.

  • Wasabi by Morimoto

    In addition to Harbour Bar, the Taj Mahal Palace & Tower Hotel also features Wasabi by Morimoto restaurant, a dining experience that transports guests into a magic box of red lacquer wrapping from the staircase to the restaurant entrance.

A large work of art by Sadanand Shirke defines the freestanding sushi counter and teppanyaki kitchen. An intimate private dining experience for 8, complete with a personal chef and exclusive sushi preparation, takes shape in a room featuring a sculptural round table lit by an oversize custom pendant dome of hammered metal.
