Collection of modern, minimalist, and eco friendly architectural design for your home inspiration
Paramount is a members bar and club. It occupies the top three floors of Centre Point in the heart of London’s West End. The British designer Tom Dixon has completed the interior design, thus allowing Paramount officially opened its doors.
Dixon delivered the sophisticating design to offer unquestionably spectacular setting for this full members’ club, lounge, bar, restaurant and private-hire events space. He oversaw the project as creative director of Design Research Studio.
The Paramount aims to bring together a wide range of London’s leading influential communities, so they can eat, drink, relax and also exchange ideas.
Mark Way, in Association with Murphy Philipps, was appointed as lead architectural consultant in 2006 to project manage the build from inception to creation. Mark has realised the vision working in close collaboration with British design luminary Tom Dixon through Design Reaserch Studio, responded to the brief with a sophisticated interpretation of a raw and stripped-down aesthetic he has developed over recent years.
Here, materials are celebrated as the essential building blocks that they are, unfettered by any excessive ornamentation or fuss that may hide the honest beauty of the end result or that may give rise to a fashion statement that will, by its very nature, be quickly surpassed. Instead, Tom offers a striking, bold and robust design that not only slots seamlessly into Richard Seifert’s architecture, but also offers Paramount a genuine longevity and timeless style.
Dixon worked together with leading UK-based lighting design practice GIA Equation on Paramount’s lighting design.
Paramount’s different rooms and facilities include a dedicated entrance on the first floor mezzanine level that is accessed via a separate external staircase. Here, atop original 1960s monochrome terrazzo flooring sits a Barbara Hepworth inspired copper reception desk where guests are welcomed by Paramount staff. From here, express lifts whisk guests attending events up to the 31st floor events space, which is a self-contained 4,550 sq ft space with a 10 meter-long bar facing the west side (and, of course, London sunsets) designed specifically for private events – launches, dinners, screenings, meetings and presentations – able to accommodate 350 people standing or 160 seated.
One level up, on the 32nd floor, is the main hub of the members’ club, featuring a bespoke Tom Dixon copper bar, relaxed dining and lounging areas, a more formal restaurant, and a private dining room. The Viewing Gallery on the 33rd floor is the summit of the building and boasts a members’ Champagne and Cocktail Bar, which curls around the circumference offering floor to ceiling glazing, in a complete 360 degree circle.
Located on Level 32 of Centre Point, Paramount members-only restaurant offers a second to none scenic bird’s eye view of London. Headed up by Chef James O’Connor, formerly of Bovey Castle and Damien Hirst’s restaurant in Ifracombe, the menu is an offering of universally appealing classic Modern British dishes. The Paramount private dining room will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, while Paramount members lounge will open from 10am until late Monday to Friday and 12 midday until late on weekends, serving a range of cocktails and drinks.
