The Mondrian London on the South Bank is to be managed independently and has rebranded to Sea Containers London.

The 359-room hotel opened in 2014 within the renovated 1970s Sea Containers building, when it became the only Mondrian-branded property outside the US.

Lore Group is taking over the management of the hotel from SBE, owners of the Mondrian brand, and will relaunch the current Dandelyan bar in March, with a new concept by Ryan Chetiyawardana (also known as Mr Lyan).

The hotel’s rooftop bar (formerly known as Rumpus Room) has also been rebranded as 12th Knot.

Existing features including Sea Container Restaurant, Agua spa, and Curzon cinema will continue to operate, and the hotel “will receive a variety of interior updates that will build on the existing design”.

The debranding of Mondrian London leaves Mondrian with four properties currently operating – in New York, Los Angeles, Miami South Beach and Doha.
