Olympic timekeeper Omega has taken up residence in London’s Soho to welcome guests from around the world, as well as to host parties filled with celebrities.
Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban were in attendance this weekend as the Swiss watchmaker unveiled its renovations to the historic House of Saint Barnabas in London. Located at 1 Greek Street, across from Soho Square, Omega spent the Spring replacing the flooring throughout the house, as well as updating toilets, paint and wallpaper – all in line with the house’s traditional English Heritage theme.
Each room has been outfitted to emulate a different Omega watch, like the Ladymatic Room, which has been done up in subtle hues to match its classic namesake. The space-themed Speedmaster Room gets its name from the first watch to be worn on the moon while the cool blue Seamaster Room emulates the lapis lazuli color schemes of the classic Omega watch.
A Georgian townhouse, The House of St. Barnabas was in a state of disrepair until Omega began renovations. Located in a vibrant community, Omega will fit right in with DJ music and two bars. Other celebrities caught tossing back a few at Omega House include Kit Harrington from Game of Thrones and West End theatrical fixture Eddie Redmayne.
