The Lobby & Reception
Restoring the grandeur to the hotel entrance was a key influence in the design of the lobby. A bespoke Ingo Maurer chandelier has been designed to respond to the form of the staircase creating a dramatic ceiling to floor statement on arrival. The sculpture features naked light bulbs accented with goose feather wings and metal detailing.
Adjacent to the stairwell is reception. The reception desk has been designed as a standalone piece of furniture creating a welcoming environment in contrast to the formality of conventional desks. Featuring sets of drawers it brings together the design aesthetic of “collections” inviting guests to explore and interact. Etching to glazing will include fern and fossil motifs, inset floor rugs and upholstery will feature floral and botanical references and artwork will be tactile.
