Viega’s Visign Range and Pre-Wall Systems specified for The Londoner Hotel

Viega’s flush plates, in a bespoke, colour matched finish, have been specified to complement the quality and luxury aesthetic of the 350 guest rooms of The Londoner Hotel – the latest development from Edwardian Hotels London.

Viega’s pre-wall frames have also been utilised to deliver a minimalist aesthetic, maximise use of the space and ensure ease of use by all guests.

Due to open in 2021, The Londoner is located at the south-west corner of the capital’s world-famous Leicester Square, on the site of the former Odeon West End cinema.

The luxury five-star hotel boasts 350 rooms and 35 suites, an underground spa with a swimming pool, cinema and a ballroom with a capacity for 1000 people.

The five-star luxury of the hotel needed to be reflected in each element of the design, including the finish of the bathrooms. Viega’s Visign for More flush plates were specified for use in all The Londoner’s guest rooms and suites.

The smooth, clean and minimalist finish of the Visign for More supported the high-quality look envisioned by global design and consulting studio Woods Bagot, who selected the Viega products.

To create a coordinated finish for the en-suite bathrooms, the flush plates were colour matched to the luxury black brushed chrome bathware.

The technology in the Viega flush plates provides a low activation pressure and smooth operation to ensure ease of use by all users, including children and older guests. Viega’s Visign for Public flush plates were also specified for the bathrooms in the staff areas.

To continue the high-quality design of the guest bathrooms, they also feature TOTO Washlet SG shower toilets. The washlet includes features such as an automated lid and heated seat to enhance user comfort and convenience.

Viega’s pre-wall frames, which house the cistern and pipework, also provide a robust supporting structure for the TOTO Washlet, as well as the wall hung washbasins.

Floyd Case, Project Manager at TOTO, explained: “Prior to the start of the installation we worked with the team at Viega to ensure that the Viega frame and TOTO washlet would integrate seamlessly and that all the necessary training was given to the installation teams.”

Viega’s slim-line frames minimise the space needed behind the wall and help the bathroom to feel more open and spacious. The high-performance WC frames can support up to 400kg of weight while the washbasin frames are tested to 150kg to ensure they can withstand accidental or intentional misuse.

The units can be mounted on to pre-wall constructions or fixed directly to solid walls. For ease of installation, the frames can be adjusted on site to fit the height and depth of the pre-wall void.

In addition, the hotel features a number of rooms designed especially for people with special access requirements, such as wheelchair users. In these rooms the special equipment can be removed and added back as required, but it was important that all elements of the bathroom could be used by all guests.

The Viega height adjustable WC and washbasin pre-wall units allow the height of the fixtures to be adapted to the needs of different users.

The system uses a gas pressure spring to provide smooth height adjustment using a push button. The WC unit provides adjustment between 40 and 48 cm and the washbasin between 70 and 90 cm.

“The technical advice and product support we received from Viega has been excellent,” said Helen Taylor, Associate at Woods Bagot. “During the specification process the team assisted with ensuring that what we wanted could be achieved. They also helped with the creation of mock-ups of the final room design and system to get sign off by the client.”

“We are proud to have had a part in the creation of this new London landmark,” said Scott James, Managing Director at Viega. “The complexity of the project meant that it was only possible through close collaboration with the other suppliers and manufacturers, the installation teams, the contractor Blue Sky Building and Edwardian Hotels London.”
