Lumiere London is proud to announce the opening of The Embassy, on the prestigious Grosvenor Place in Hyde Park Corner.
Running along the western edge of Buckingham Palace Gardens, and just minutes from Hyde Park Corner and Victoria tube stations, Grosvenor Place boasts a rich history dating back to the 18th century and offers today an easy access to many of London’s most renowned landmarks, including Harrods, Apollo Victoria Theatre, Park Lane, Piccadilly and Green Park.
With the Irish Embassy as neighbour, the terraced building once accommodated (among others) the Association of Public Health Inspectors ‘The Sanitarian’ and Midland Bank Plc, one of the Big Four banking groups in the UK for most of the 20th century.
With exceptional attention to detail, the spacious ground floor has been lovingly reverted back to its original décor with high ceilings, sparkling chandeliers and hand painted walls and mouldings. Designer furniture from Jonathan Adler, Andrew Martin and Timothy Oulton are combined with original Louis Philippe mirrors and create an atmosphere, grand enough for even the most demanding client. Luscious fabrics, discrete lighting and designer pieces transfer the original vault rooms on the lower ground floor into a unique break-out area, ideal for smaller groups and in the future intended for art exhibitions.
Established in the actual bank vault, the Palladio Room offers the perfect space for private meetings and conference calls, its beautiful wallpaper, fabulous mirrors and the print of the original Buckingham Palace making this a one of its kind experience.
Our state-of-the-art AV equipment includes the latest sound system by Bang & Olufsen, individually designed speakers by David Lynch, the outstanding large 4K display and the Sennheiser PA system.
Lumiere London was founded by acclaimed fashion photographer Carlos Lumiere along with his husband in 2007.
Starting originally as Carlos’ photographic studio in the illustrious Menier Chocolate Factory in London Bridge, Lumiere London expanded over time into an event space used by third parties for filming, photography and corporate events. In 2014, Carlos choose to take on an even larger venue in a former printing company in Southwark, impressing clients with his unique eye for light, creative decor and interior design.
As the client base grew, so did the studios with the latest inclusion of the Embassy in Belgravia.
Today we are proud to have a long-term relationship with national and international clients including Facebook, IKEA, Unilever, Nestle, Virgin Media, Daimler Benz, Disney, Coke Cola, McDonalds, Puma, Adidas, Nando’s, all major banks, broadcasters and accountancy firms, to name only a few.
