Design showcase: Top five nooks

by | 09 Feb 2022 | Design

Size isn’t everything as we take a look at five hotels whose creative use of small spaces delivers big results in our latest collaboration with TOPHOTELDESIGN.

A nook or niche offers seclusion and security.

Small but perfectly formed

It’s a space to escape and snuggle into a world of your own. It’s a cocoon and shelter.

All that and more as designers make the best use of a lack of space.

Today, we showcase wonderful solutions for small spaces in hotels.

From double bunks in Zedwell Piccadilly, beautifully crafted in natural oak, to sound-protected private coworking spaces in Zoku Copenhagen.
