The Ampersand Hotel Meeting Rooms
Dexter Moren Associates’ concept for the meeting rooms combines a Victorian sense of resplendence with a contemporary edge. Suitably named The Games Room and The Library, the spaces are intended for meetings, private parties and overspill from Apero bar and restaurant. Overcoming the inherited issues with the dimensions of the rooms was a key feature in the design process. This was achieved by creating versatile, multifunctional spaces that can be interconnected and easily modified. Clever design elements are apparent throughout such as a large tabletop, which can be removed and hidden behind an artwork partition at the back of the room. Similar to a Victorian cabinet of curiosities the rooms are lined with fascinating books, games and items of interest.
