Intercontinental Mar Menor Polaris World turned to LHL in planning the luxury hotel at the centre of its new Mar Menor Golf Resort, south of Alicante. Around the hotel lies a spectacular golf course designed by Arnold Palmer, and each of the generous, 55sqm guestrooms enjoys a balcony and views across the fairways or pool. Our client’s vision was of an exclusive enclave that offered uninterrupted comfort and every kind of contemporary amenity, in a style that reflected its location. With its coloured walls, colonnades and tiled roofs, the hotel is a modern reflection of traditional Andalucian architecture. Our guestroom interiors continue the theme with terracotta tile floors, rustic timber casegood furniture and the finest linen.
Laucala Island Resort Laucala Island is a small, private oasis lying to the east of Taveuni, Fiji. Just 5km long, it was owned until 2003 by the family of publishing magnate, Malcolm Forbes. The resort has now been transformed by its current owner, Red Bull co-founder Dietrich Mateschitz. His brief to LHL was to design the interiors of every building on the island – including 25 villas, the Plantation House Restaurant, golf club, pool bar, spa, Sea Grass Lounge and beach bar – and, with architects WATG, to create a truly original, idyllic South Pacific island experience.
Allen & Overy Allen & Overy is recognised as one of the UK’s leading law firms and when they felt their lobby space needed some active areas they contacted LHL to review the areas. The space is vast with various entry points and reception areas and there was very little space to sit, or have a semi private conversation. LHL created pods of furniture to activate the space along with introducing as stunning green wall to soften the interior finishes.
Shore Capital Shore Capital HQ located in the heart of London’s St James. The offices house coporate entertaining spaces, reception areas, private offices along with the trading floor and several meeting rooms. LHL were responsible to create an elegant and stylish interior to the public reception areas, boardroom and private CEO offices.

Lynne Hunt London creates a kind of luxury that is contemporary, fresh and full of unexpected twists. Our design is audacious, not ostentatious, drawing inspiration from local environments and cultures to create interiors that range from the chic and urban to the organic and whimsical.
At our Chelsea studio, a small team of designers works with Lynne on projects for hotels, resorts, restaurants and bars, both in the UK and much further afield. Our experience encompasses new-build and refurbishment interiors for some of the world’s leading destinations and hoteliers, from London to the South Pacific via the Mediterranean and the Middle East.
We work on residential projects, too, freshening period properties and working closely with architects to shape and style new homes. The diversity of our work inspires us. We have designed entire resorts and family tabletops – there isn’t an element of interiors that we haven’t loved imagining and interpreting in our own way.
Lynne Hunt trained in interior design at Brooks College, Long Beach. After graduating, she returned to the UK and worked on her first hotel projects at Ezra Attia & Associates in London, including the Library Bar at the Lanesborough and the Windsor Lounge of the Athenaeum Hotel.
At Gregory Aeberhard, Lynne designed and project managed refurbishments for leading hotels in the UAE, Jordan, Bahrain, Oslo and on the Côte d’Azur. In 1993, she formed Hunt Hamilton Zuch, focusing on luxury interiors. The company’s first assignment was to redesign a set of cloakrooms. Fortunately, the Hyatt Carlton Tower in London invited HHZ back several times to refit more glamorous areas of the hotel.
In 1995 Lynne was chosen to create a set of deluxe guest rooms at Claridge’s – the first new construction there since the war, and in 2004 undertook the extraordinary task of redesigning Laucala Island Resort. The company changed its name in 2011 to Lynne Hunt London – a more personal name for a company where lasting relationships and painstaking attention to detail remain paramount.
