Originally a newspaper print works, One Aldwych occupies a prime location at the junction of Aldwych and the Strand in Central London. Cundall's innovative approach and intricate engineering techniques contributed to creating a jewel among London’s premier hotels.

Initial studies indicated that conventional solutions to services distribution would only allow for the provision of 85 bedrooms. However, to be a viable investment, the client’s business plan required 110 bedrooms, some of which needed to be combined to form suites.

Cundall achieved significant space savings by utilising a vacuum waste disposal system, which eliminated the need for large bathroom ducts and space-consuming horizontal pipe collection. This system has the additional advantage of using a minimal amount of water for flushing, creating further savings in pipework, storage and consumption costs.

The basement-level swimming pool floats in the sprinkler system’s water storage tank and, although totally quiet above water, there is piped classical music that can be heard underwater.
