Theo Dubroy says: “The Arch London is perfectly located close to London’s most prestigious art venues. The owners of hotel are also hugely passionate about art and we are fortunate to have specially curated artworks by British talents displayed in all the guestrooms and public areas. Vincent Poole’s “New Shoes” collage welcomes guests at the entrance to the hotel and is a visual homage to the designer boutiques surrounding the hotel; while above the concierge desk there is a moving art installation. The corridors have also been permeated with character, and Peter Defty’s black and white ‘Alphatecture’ series of prints span the length of the gallery-inspired hall leading towards the Martini Library.”
