The stylish hotel chain The Standard has opened its first
branch outside the USA in London. Housed in the former Camden Town Hall Annex,
in London’s King’s Cross neighbourhood, the 1974 Brutalist building has been
meticulously restored and sets the perfect stage for The Standard’s first hotel
outside America. The bathrooms are equipped with Bette products.
Altogether the five star hotel is offering 266 rooms, in 42
unique styles to its guests, ranging from Cosy Core rooms to terraced suites with
outdoor bathtubs overlooking the impressive St Pancras station. On the ground
floor you can find The Library Lounge, where the carefully curated library pays
homage to the building’s original use, and, the Sounds Studio, home of the
virtual culture hub and Somtimes Radio.

90cm for the bathrooms of The Standard, London. All are made from durable,
hygienic and easy to clean, glazed titanium-steel, in matt white colour,
