Un hotel en Londres muestra sus nuevos interiores de alto diseño

by | 11 Nov 2021 | Uncategorized

Se publicaron fotos impresionantes antes de la apertura de un hotel de 145 habitaciones diseñadas por Rani Ahluwalia de Key Interior and Designs en colaboración con Ica.

Hay gran expectativa en torno a la apertura de una propiedad de la marca Curio Collection cerca de la catedral de San Pablo.

¿Qué se puede encontrar en Lost Property?

Tras una ambiciosa renovación de una propiedad ya existente en el corazón de la capital británica, Lost Property St Paul’s London, Curio Collection by Hilton abrirá sus puertas en el segundo trimestre de 2022. Ahora, el equipo que está detrás del proyecto publicó las primeras imágenes del interior del edificio, que muestran el aspecto que tendrán las habitaciones, los baños y las zonas públicas.

Las elegantes habitaciones cuentan con suelos geométricos y tapicerías de vibrantes motivos, con decoraciones de pared de estilo art decó y adornos de cobre. Los baños mantienen el tema art decó hasta el espejo y las luces laterales que lo acompañan, complementados por modernos inodoros colgados en la pared, lavabos empotrados y duchas de última generación. Las zonas públicas incluyen obras de arte contemporáneas inspiradas en Londres, alfombras resistentes y iluminación cuidadosamente pensada.

A poca distancia de la catedral

Lost Property, cuyo propietario y promotor es Dominvs Group, contará con 145 habitaciones, un bar, un restaurante y una cafetería. Está situado a sólo 100 m de la catedral de San Pablo, en Ludgate Hill, y las habitaciones orientadas al norte y al este se beneficiarán de unas vistas impresionantes del emblemático monumento londinense.

Patrick Fitzgibbon, vicepresidente sénior de desarrollo de EMEA de Hilton, comenta: «La catedral de San Pablo es conocida internacionalmente como uno de los monumentos más preciados de Londres, y Lost Property St Paul’s London, Curio Collection by Hilton proporcionará la base perfecta desde la que explorar la capital. Dominvs Group es un socio excepcional, y estamos encantados de aumentar nuestro portfolio del centro de Londres con esta elegante incorporación».

Una colaboración entre Key e Ica

Repartidas en las seis plantas del hotel, las habitaciones fueron diseñadas por Rani Ahluwalia, directora creativa de Key Interior and Designs, en colaboración con Ica. El Grupo Dominvs está supervisando la sensible renovación de la fachada de piedra gris del edificio, de grado II.

«Estoy encantado de mostrar por fin el interior de este nuevo y hermoso hotel. A lo largo de los dos últimos años, intentamos crear un hotel con personalidad propia; un espacio elegante y moderno combinado con un acabado sofisticado y cómodo. Curio Collection by Hilton es conocido por sus impresionantes interiores a medida y atractivos, y encontramos el equilibrio que complementa el histórico exterior tradicional del edificio», comenta Ahluwalia.

Ashley McCabe, director de diseño de interiores en Ica, añade: «La catedral de San Pablo es un lugar emblemático y su presencia dicta que este hotel tiene que ser un lugar muy especial. Como contrapunto a la grandiosa arquitectura cívica de San Pablo, Lost Property tiene una escala muy humana, un refugio elegante e íntimo de la vibrante ciudad exterior. El interior proporcionará a los huéspedes un viaje a través de espacios extravagantes e inesperados donde podrán perderse».

Revamped London hotel offers sneak peek of design-led interiors

by | 11 Nov 2021 | Design

Eye-catching photos have been released ahead of the opening of a 145-key hotel featuring guestrooms by Rani Ahluwalia of Key Interior and Designs in partnership with Ica.

Excitement is building around the forthcoming debut of a Curio Collection-branded property near St Paul’s Cathedral.

What will guests find in Lost Property?

Following an ambitious renovation of an existing property in the heart of the UK capital, Lost Property St Paul’s London, Curio Collection by Hilton will open its doors in spring 2022. Now the team behind the project have unveiled the first interior shots from the fit-out, showing exactly how its guestrooms, bathrooms and public areas will look.

The elegant guestrooms feature geometric flooring and vibrantly patterned upholstery with art deco-style wall decorations and brass trims. Bathrooms carry the art deco theme through to the mirror and accompanying side lights, complemented by modern wall-hung toilets, recessed washbasins and cutting-edge showers. And the public areas include London-inspired contemporary artworks, hardwearing carpets and carefully positioned spotlights.

Within easy reach of St Paul’s

Lost Property, which is owned and is being developed by Dominvs Group, will incorporate 145 guestrooms, a bar, a restaurant and a café. It’s located just 100 m from St Paul’s Cathedral on Ludgate Hill, and rooms facing north and east will benefit from impressive views of London’s iconic landmark.

Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development, EMEA, Hilton, said: “St Paul’s Cathedral is internationally recognised as one of London’s most treasured landmarks, and Lost Property St Paul’s London, Curio Collection by Hilton will provide the perfect base from which to explore the capital. Dominvs Group have been exceptional partners, and we’re pleased to be growing our central London portfolio with this elegant addition.”

A collaboration between Key and Ica

Spread across the hotel’s six floors, the rooms are being designed by Rani Ahluwalia, creative director of Key Interior and Designs, in partnership with Ica. Dominvs Group is overseeing the sensitive refurbishment of the building’s grade II-listed grey stone façade.

Ahluwalia said: “I’m delighted to finally reveal the inside of this beautiful new hotel. Over the last two years, we sought to create a hotel with its own personality; an elegant, modern space combined with a sophisticated and comfortable finish. Curio Collection by Hilton is renowned for its stunning bespoke and appealing interiors, and we have found the balance that complements the historical traditional exterior of the building.”

Ashley McCabe, lead interior designer at Ica, added: “St Paul’s Cathedral is such an iconic location and its presence dictates that this hotel needs to be a very special place. In a counterpoint to the grand civic architecture of St Paul’s, Lost Property is on a very human scale, a stylish and intimate retreat from the busy boulevard outside. The interior will provide the guests with a journey through quirky, unexpected spaces, finding themselves lost in the moment.”
