While original biblical Doulton terracotta panels still line the walls, simple pleasures are amplified with bespoke scents by Roja Dove, and leather and velvet-draped walls, as L’oscar now celebrates a more sensual devotion. Uniquely sophisticated, the hotel sits within the heart of London and just a whisper away from of the city, Theatreland, Soho, and the West End.
L’oscar’s past is as intriguing as its future. Built between 1901 and 1903, in a style coined "Edwardian Free Baroque", it was the London headquarters of the Baptist Church.
Architect Arthur Keen mixed ‘Wrenaissance’ style with Arts & Crafts influences, working with some of the best artists and craftsmen of the time to create much of the exterior and interior design: ornately plastered ceilings, carved fireplaces, oak panelling, and finely worked plaques.
Sadly, the building’s fourth floor was damaged by a bomb in World War II. Later, the church’s congregation dwindled and by 1961, there were just 12 worshippers in the chapel on a Sunday morning. It closed to churchgoers soon afterwards and the building was bought by London Transport before its ‘miraculous’ revival began in 2012 with many of its features beautifully restored by master craftsman from across the world.
The management team also remain thankful to both English Heritage and Camden Council for their expert assistance in guiding the sensitive restoration of the building.
