The OWO is a new landmark destination in London, which includes a 120 key 5*Star Raffles Hotel, 11 restaurants & bars, a wellness spa and 85 Raffles branded residences.
Sir Winston Churchill once said, 'we shape our buildings, thereafter they shape us'. It is a statement perhaps written with the Old War Office in mind.
Standing proudly on Whitehall, alongside London's great ceremonial route, this is a building that shaped not just a nation, but the world.
Behind the Edwardian Baroque architecture and ornate Portland stone façades rests a place where great statesmen, brilliant minds and tacticians made choices that altered the course of human history.
And now, today, we find new change. Not by the actions borne from its great alabaster halls, but to the very building itself. Put simply, it now becomes The OWO. A place worthy of those who graced its grandeur in earlier times. With unmatched elegance, calm and security, it will give rise to a collection of homes without equal - The OWO Residences by Raffles.
Its hallowed rooms will host world-class dining, bars and experiences, complete with London's first Raffles Hotel. A place full of life and great joy, home only to a select few. A fitting tribute to its extraordinary history.
One of London's grandest and most iconic landmarks, The OWO is being reincarnated as a world class lifestyle destination set to be opened later this year. With an integrated Raffles Hotel, 85 private residences, 11 restaurants, a rooftop cocktail bar, best in class services and a plethora of private amenities, The OWO is poised to become one of the most memorable and imposing destinations on the global stage.Adam Simmonds
