Morco SQ2 awnings for Galvin at the Athenaeum Hotel

18 Sep 2017

The Morco exclusive SQ2 recessed facia shop awning incorporates a slim flat profile which is designed to fit neatly on to the recess of any shop front creating an unencumbered appearance which will not detract from any facia no matter how plain or ornate. In this case at Galvin at the Athenaeum we powdered coated the profile and ancillary parts in black to match with the subdued anthracite tone of the fabric cover.  Our graphics department finished of the whole with a logo applied to the front profile in a subtle traditional font. Naturally, the awnings are remotely controlled from concealed switches and are virtually maintenance free.   

The Athenaeum hotel is an independent, award-winning establishment in the heart of Mayfair, opposite the sylvan setting of  Green Park. The hotel is a rarity in that it is one of the very few completely independent five-star hotels in London. The hotel has received a  multi-million-pound refurbishment, of which the Morco awnings are a part, resulting in the  Athenaeum Hotel & Residences entering an exciting new era. These special awnings are on the restaurant, Galvin at The Athenaeum, a restaurant from Michelin-starred London chefs Chris and Jeff Galvin.

16 Piccadilly has seen many interesting occupants in the past. In 1850, it started life as Hope House, the elegant private home of MP Henry Hope. It is  said the mansion attracted the attention of Charles Dickens, who commented on its extravagant interiors.
