Hotels are one of the best signs of luxury. It’s where some of the most beautiful and luxurious designs in architecture, interior design, and architectural hardware can be discovered.
Coco Chanel lived in and called The Paris Ritz hotel home for decades. With staycations on the rise and hotel rooms re-engineered for remote working. Perhaps now might be the time when we begin to see demand for extending hotel-style living at home. Here is our quick guide to adding hotel-style finishing to a residential project.
The Great Scotland Yard Hotel has had many lives. Prior to its transformation into one of London’s most luxurious hotels. This building was HQ to Scotland Yard Police and home to the Ministry of Defence.
To celebrate the history of the building, the designers commissioned bespoke door furniture to reflect the building’s heritage, whilst exuding luxury. Architectural hardware like doorknobs, lever handles, letterings, and more can help create that sense of hotel-style luxury. This project illustrates how this was achieved on a grand scale, the same principles could be applied to residential homes.
The hotel bathroom has to work for a number of different users. It is a prime example of form and function in practice.
