Fettle has worked in collaboration with Ennismore to design The Hoxton Portland, the sixth hotel in the brand’s portfolio. Located on the site of a former 1920’s theatre in the historic Chinatown district of the city, the studio was appointed to design the public spaces of the hotel, including the restaurant, cocktail bar, lobby, cafe and ‘apartment-style’ meeting spaces. Keeping true to the hotel’s style and ethos, the design studio took inspiration from the surrounding location, known for its industrial, gritty backdrop juxtaposed with areas of surrounding natural beauty.

The fabric and history of the structure also played a large part in the inspiration behind the designs of the project. The hotel is a combination of an old 1920’s theatre and a new build tower which houses the hotel rooms. The old part of the hotel features beautiful heavily textured wooden columns, old plaster finishes and textured concrete which have been retained and restored as part of the design concept. In contrast, the new part of the building features a clean and industrial presence with a striking glazed facade. The combination of modern design paired with traditional style and features underpins the iconic Hoxton Hotel House style.

The public spaces showcase distinct personalities yet stylistically connect to one another through material, fixtures and furniture design. The heart of the hotel, the lobby, is a community hub and place for socialisation for guests and locals alike. The interior’s open planned design includes an expansive brick wall featuring an integrated central fireplace, a focal point around which the colourfully upholstered mid-century inspired furniture is orientated. The pendant lights that feature within the space were custom designed by Fettle for the project and are complimented by Armstrong’s Tectum wood/wool ceiling panels, coloured in a soft and inviting Bella Pink hue.

The bar and restaurant interiors sit to the front of the building and are surrounded on two sides by the full height glazing of the existing facade. A large timber topped bar with colourful teal underside stands prominently on one side of the space, while reclaimed timber flooring, sourced locally from Pioneer Millworks, runs through from the lobby.

The restaurant ‘La Neta’, is located at the opposite end of the room and features walls clad in dark painted timber panelling, adorned with Latin-inspired artwork curated by local art consultant Upfor Gallery. Simple freestanding banquettes, upholstered in aged green leather, are coupled with timber and tan leather chairs and oak dining tables.

Can Bordoy Hotel Project in Palma de Mallorca by OHLAB

Can Bordoy Hotel Project in Palma de Mallorca by OHLAB

Can Bordoy is a small hotel located in the centre of Palma de Mallorca. OHLAB did a complete renovation of an abandoned building that has been intervened throughout its more than 500 years of history.

OHLAB is an award-winning company devoted to the urban analysis and cultural research of contemporary society through design, architectural practise and urban strategy. The company has been awarded the Interior Design firm of 2019 by Architecture Masterprize, selected as one of the best 6 emerging interior design studios of 2018 by Dezeen and has been previously described by the Chicago Atheneum as one of Europe’s most important emerging architects.

Can Bordoy Hotel Project in Palma de Mallorca by OHLAB

The renovation of Can Bordoy was made in order to evoke the experience of visiting a house more than a hotel. Hence, rather than being at the hotel reception, visitors meet at the entrance hall of the house, and instead of a restaurant, there is a residential dining room, bedrooms and living rooms are the same as the ones one finds in a home.

Can Bordoy Hotel Project in Palma de Mallorca by OHLAB

Can Bordoy Hotel Project in Palma de Mallorca by OHLAB

Inspired by Kintsugi – the traditional Japanese technique of repairing broken antique porcelain with gold dust that does not hide the fracture – the project carefully preserves the romantic and decadent atmosphere found in the building and is deliberately contrasted with interventions and elements from different epochs. The proposal respects the existing centenary architectural crossbreeding, maintaining the traces of the past and avoiding a false recovery of a glorious past that the house never had.

A series of architectural strategies were designed and developed throughout the building as a collection of theatrical and distinctive contemporary interventions in dialogue with the existing building.

Eliská: Blending Cultures and Experiences in a Unique Way

With an experience in the design of over 30 years, Eliská Sapera’s interior design is known and in demand all over the world. Eliská is renowned for her ability to combine both contemporary and traditional styles, creating a unique and timeless look with hints of subtle luxury.

 

Eliská: Blending Cultures and Experiences in an Unique Way

by CovetED

 

Eliská began her design career in the fashion industry, translating her success into interiors and home styling. Currently based in London, the designer has a successful design practice and a boutique shop in the United Kingdom. A constant presence in the Top Designer’s Lists of London, Eliská is a powerful design force with a vast experience in the manufacture and combination of fabric and textiles!

As a reflection of her worldwide tastes and experiences, Eliská combines different cultures, converting them into the design. Eliská mixes English, European, Middle Eastern and Asian features, creating a unique interior design style.

Subsequent to becoming a mother, Eliská was unable to travel as much; for that reason, she started designing fabrics and textiles which lead her to room sets and in due course to interiors.

 

“I’ve always been very curious about different times, fashion, and interiors. That is why I like mixing.”

 

The Langham

 

Here are two projects that showcase Eliská’s design talent and unique style:

 

West End Private Members Club

Eliská: Blending Cultures and Experiences in an Unique Way

by Eliská

 

Eliská Design Associates were asked to create an alfresco Cigar snug for Home House Private Member’s Club in Portman Square, London. The studio delivered an elegant and enduring space that could be used by guests all year round.  Finishes were paramount- the client asked for a contemporary version of the classic Chesterfield buttoned banquette, and to create as many seating options as possible within a limited space.  Slick, but comfortable, with a resonance of this iconic club’s architectural heritage- the studio was asked to focus on bold leather details evocative of heritage luxuriousness and to describe through design the timeless combination of leather and tobacco.

 

City of London Bar

Eliská: Blending Cultures and Experiences in an Unique Way

by Eliská

 

Eiská collaborated for this project with a London based architect. The bar was being split into two separate entities and Eliská worked with the clients to coherently differentiate the spaces through clever design, to a budget. The clients were installing a craft beer and Prosecco on tap bar as the ground floor and wanted an atmospheric cocktail lounge in the basement.

 

Eliská: Blending Cultures and Experiences in an Unique Way

by Eliská

 

The entrance bar brought together a cool-toned monochromatic colour scheme and industrial accents such as metro tiled walls, exposed steel and wooden bar tops and embossed pressed tin panels to the bar front.  Eliská involved a lighting designer to produce playful industrial fixtures in the bar- such as tap fittings which featured as lights. This industrial feel was contrasted to the basement lounge bar, where mood lighting and a scheme of deep amber was complimented by the bespoke, riveted copper bar with matching accessories.

Vana Pernari Architecture Studio‘s approach is always aesthetic, functional, experimental, respecting nature and its balance, aiming at creating meaningful spaces. They are constantly searching for more light, space and green. Inspired by Van Gogh‘s quote ‘The Mediterranean has the colour of mackerel, changeable I mean. You don’t always know if it is green or violet, you can’t even say it’s blue, because the next moment the changing reflection has taken on a tint of rose or grey.’, the colour palette of a typical Mediterranean area is very much present at the hotel.

Material-wise, Vana Pernari Architecture Studio used natural materials like marble, cotto, wood and brass avoiding artificial materials while creating bright spaces with relaxed, earthy and slightly boho mood but with a touch of colour and elegance, to bring inside the colours and joy of the hotel’s amazing gardens as well as the colours found on the murals and artworks of Crete’s Minoan palaces presented in an exotic way.

David Collins by Terence Donovan

The David Collins Studio’s work gets its inspiration in many different sources, without ever being too obvious, like art, cinema, music, fashion, architecture, literature, philosophy, geography, and history. Their skill is in distilling all of this into an environment which belongs to no specific era or discipline. It is the instinct to look to the past without nostalgia. To reference history without the slide towards pastiche.

David Collins Studio

David Collins Studio has created unique projects for a wide range of clients both in the commercial worlds of high fashion as well as the design of some of London’s most loved and revered restaurants, hotels and bars. Works for private clients are no less impressive, designing homes for those who appreciate beauty, comfort and attention to detail.

The reputation the David Collins Studio has built reflects their passion for design, hard work and interesting challenges that express their creativity. In 2014 David Collins Studio joined Walpole British Luxury. In 2013 Walpole honoured David Collins with the lifetime achievement award.

Opened in April 2010, the Delaire Graff estate lodges and spa sit within the Helshoogte mountain pass outside cape town. Created for Laurence Graff Obe, owner of the Delaire Graff Estate, the design of each lodge is inspired by the local cape Dutch architecture with a palette that takes inspiration from the backdrop of the wine lands. Grass papers, end grain flooring, polished plasters, hand-woven rugs and textured leathers create a refined feel using indigenous materials. The hotel comprises a series of ten lodges that feature a collection of furniture designed by David Collins Studio and fabricated locally in South Africa. The Delaire Graff Estate is the winner of the “best grape estate” from wallpaper* magazine and was included in the “best new hotels 2011” by travel & leisure.

Châteu de Vignée by WeWantMore, a Frame Awards 2021 Design
Boutique Hotels, By Region, Europe

Chateau de Vignee by WeWantMore, a Frame Awards 2021 Design

Chateau de Vignee was previously a classic hunter’s hotel strategically located between Brussels and Luxembourg. The brief  WeWantMore received was to transform it into a top destination for travellers in the luxury segment in the Belgian Ardennes region, offering an all-encompassing high-end hospitality experience. The project brief included the interior design of a boutique hotel with twenty-five bespoke rooms, a bar area, a Gault & Millau listed restaurant, a private dining, two event venues and an in- and outdoor wellness area.

It was key to appeal to both the modernday traveller with high-end design needs in the luxury segment as the more conventional existing hunting clientele of the estate. Furthermore, the requirements set by Relais & Chateaux needed to be met within the context of the 17th-century chateau building. The old chateau building and the courtyard were completely restored, while a new-build element was added to the estate to host part of the rooms and the entire wellness area.

Châteu de Vignée by WeWantMore, a Frame Awards 2021 Design

Chateau de Vignée was set on becoming a luxury retreat for its guests to escape a fast-paced society. Unwinding there means surrendering to nature because the strong-willed landscape of the Ardennes is truly undeniable. So, WeWantMore positioned Chateau de Vignée as an entity in sync with its natural surroundings. The design concept sprouted from the hotel’s history and impressive surroundings.

Châteu de Vignée by WeWantMore, a Frame Awards 2021 Design

INSPIRED BY THE LOOK – COMO SOFA

Intrigued by the Chateau’s century-long link with hunting, WeWantMore imagined the sensorial experience of a hunter exploring the Ardennes. The visual perception of sunlight breaking through the leaf canopy. A ray of light strikes one spot but leaves its surroundings in the dark. Like a natural claire obscure effect. The sounds of the misty forest awaking. The lingering suspense of an unexpected encounter. The design studio aimed to capture this feeling in the design of the interior and branding because it is sensation hotel guests will resonate with during their stay in the Ardennes region.

WeWantMore expressed the hunter’s journey throughout the interior. Entering the main chateau building immediately sets the tone. A seasonal faux flower installation descends from the sky in the lobby. Rays of sunlight seem to pierce through the greenery. In the bar section, a custom-designed bas-relief in the back bar catches the eye. The hunting scene is made up out of Ardennes sourced BlueStone.

WeWantMore opted for native marbles and natural stones like Rouge Belge and Gris d’Ardenne throughout the entire project to add to the main design concept. The tailor-made terrazzo flooring in the lobby is entirely composed out of marble fragments of the former hotel rooms. The hunter’s journey continues in the lounge, where the custom-designed lighting branches out across the ceiling conjuring the same early morning, gloomy forest atmosphere. The interior design of the rooms echoes the fluid beauty of the Ardennes region. Expressive and flamboyant on occasion, but equally pure and tranquil at other points in time.

Since it was key to appeal to both the modern-day traveller as the more conventional existing clientele of the estate, WeWantMore searched for the right balance between heritage and marvel. The design studio wanted to make it genuinely fun for guests to be there, but still, respect the history of the building and site. So, WeWantMore interpreted classic hunting and natural elements in a novel way. The visual identity draws from the same hunting narrative. Just like Chateau de Vignée’s surroundings, all branding elements, as well as the installations, are updated every season to align with the overall guest experience. While some hotels offer a sense of escapism by keeping out the outside world, a Chateau de Vignée, WeWantMore consciously pulled it indoors to enhance the connection with nature. The interior design and visual identity combined, reduce the boundaries between out- and indoors to a minimum adding to the unwinding experience of Chateau de Vignee.

Atelier Hammerl and Dannenberg created spaces which radiate peace and well-being. Therefore the hotel is designed in natural materials and colours. The fauna and flora of the Isarmoos was the Atelier’s inspiration with its colours, shapes and light effects for the interior design.
