Standard Hotels is bringing its brand overseas, with the lifestyle brand's first non-U.S. outpost scheduled to open in London later this year.

Housed in a historic building in the city's King's Cross district, The Standard London will feature 266 guestrooms designed by Shawn Hausman Design, with a number of rooms featuring outdoor terraces overlooking St. Pancras Station.

The hotel's culinary programming will be helmed by chefs Adam Rawson and Peter Sanchez-Iglesias. The pair will spearhead plans for an indoor-outdoor garden restaurant as well as a "destination" rooftop venue.

The Standard's existing five-hotel footprint includes two properties in New York City as well as outposts in Miami Beach, downtown Los Angeles and Hollywood, Calif.
