Modern plasterwork design for Berkeley Hotel ballroom ceiling


We were commissioned to create a very modern plasterwork ceiling for London’s first contemporary ballroom within the five-star Berkeley Hotel in fashionable Knightsbridge.


A modern plaster ceiling design for a contemporary ballroom

The five-star deluxe Berkeley Hotel is the sister hotel to Claridge’s and The Connaught in Mayfair, and boasts the Michelin-starred flagship restaurant of celebrity chef Marcus Wareing and London’s only rooftop swimming pool.

The ballroom set out to capture the glamour and occasion of a classic ballroom but using an innovative design language, with eucalyptus-wood panelling, inventive lighting and a striking, bespoke 3D ceiling.

Our in-house CAD team and traditional master craftsmen worked with architects’ and designers’ drawings, crafting their plaster design ideas into samples of ‘razor cast’ plaster mouldings. Once approved, we created a plain face modern geometric plaster ceiling design which incorporated these razor casts within it. Unique air vent slots were also created in our modern ceiling mouldings to create a seamless finish almost invisible to the eye. It pointed to how flexible fibrous plasterwork really is, whether for traditional or more contemporary designs.


We were incredibly proud of the finished design, and how our craftspeople devised a 3D geometric plaster ceiling design that could incorporate speakers, lighting, climate control and sprinklers unobtrusively.
