Putney boutique aims for new eco rating after refurbishment


The Lodge Hotel in Putney is gearing up for its summer relaunch with the addition of 25 bedrooms, two suites and a new meetings and events space.

The boutique in London will now be home to 77 bedrooms after the extensive refurbishment and a 1,800 sq ft events space for up to 200 guests.

The new development marks a new direction for The Lodge Hotel, with a refined focus on sustainability and the use of environmentally-friendly materials, in a bid to attract CSR conscious corporations.

Once the new spaces are officially opened in the summer, the hotel is aiming to achieve BREEAM Excellence accreditation for sustainable design and build.

The Lodge is owned by the Hirschfield family who have been at the helm for the past 45 years. The refurbishment was overseen by third generation hotelier Ben Hirschfield.

The new design is a ‘classic London’ theme, while also building on the New York urban style that the hotel is already home to.

Building within the remits of BREEAM, The Lodge’s highlights include installing sedum roofing, which will absorb rainwater and reduces surface run off and help to heat and cool the building.

Solar panels on the building will help to ensure the A/C output in the bedrooms is kept as low as possible.

Each room is individually designed with bespoke furniture crafted by local Fulham designers.
