St Pancras Renaissance London Hotel is the forming frontispiece of St. Pancras railway station. It opened in 2011, as a five-star hotel offering beautifully restored Victorian architecture.

The main public rooms of the old Midland Grand Hotel were restored along with some bedrooms, originally designed by George Gilbert Scott which opened in 1873 and closed in 1935. Between 1935 and 2011, the building was known as St Pancras Chambers and was used as railway offices.

Diffusion supplied 500 bespoke fan coil units. St Pancras Hotel is a Grade 1 listed building, which meant all of the fan coil units were designed to fit the architectural, restoration and delivery requirements of the site.

  • PRODUCT: High Performance Air Curtains & Fan Coil Units
  • TYPE: Bespoke Savanna, Highline 270, Highline 260 & Lowline 420
  • CONTRACTOR: Barrier Air Conditioning


Diffusion has recently supplied a bespoke air curtain and various fan coil units to the 5-star  hotel The Lanesborough on Hyde Park Corner, London. The hotel is reputedly the most expensive hotel in London and has accommodated visiting royalty, eminent politicians and entertainers.

The renovation work designed by world renowned interior designer, Alberto Pinto, has enhanced all guest rooms and public areas. It honours the building’s architectural heritage as one of London’s most revered Regency landmarks, and embodies the signature style that has become synonymous with The Lanesborough, whilst incorporating  contemporary luxury and technological innovations.

Due to The Lanesborough being a landmark Grade II listed building the recessed Savanna high performance air curtain had to be designed to fit within the ceiling constraints, plus making sure it was still an effective air curtain when being mounted at a height of 3.5m (FFL). Diffusion has supplied Highline 270, vertical highline 260 and vertical Lowline 420 all with energy efficient motors. These have been supplied to many various locations throughout the hotel such as The Queens Entrance, The Wellington, Great Hall Circulation and The Belgravia Room.
