Hospitality Design - November 2013 - 113

3. Various pieces of
atwork add a touch of
the unexpected in the
guestrooms.
4. Aluminum lighting,
metal display
shelves, and daybeds
upholstered in reverse
denim instill a vibe of
utilitarian simplicity in
guestrooms.

5. Hand-laid brick, a
custom theater-style
light grid, and rows
of potted plants from
the hotel's That Flower
Shop define the external
entrance foyer.

6. In Hoi Polloi, a
brasserie-like space
with high ceilings,
there are peach leather
banquettes and linoleum
tabletops.
7. Like all Ace
properties, the London
Shoreditch features a
vintage photo booth.

Hot-rolled steel, exposed concrete, parquet flooring, and custom
copper light fixtures hanging from a cork ceiling bring an industrial
aesthetic to the lobby, subdivided into communal zones by glass and
steel screens and banks of bespoke furniture. In the lobby bar, glazed
brickwork complements leather seating, a zinc-cladded bar by artist
Max Lamb, and the 16-seat oak, cast iron, and brass communal work
table, while the adjacent café incorporates handmade tiling and
decorative timber flooring.
Conceived as apartments complete with vintage furniture and
long-treasured objects, the 258 rooms are infused with a utilitarian
simplicity based around a "non-color" palette, multifunctional
pieces, metal display shelving, and monochromatic bathrooms.
Oak bed platforms, daybeds upholstered in reverse denim, artwork
commissioned from an impressive range of artists (the lobby boasts
an art gallery as well), and aluminum pendant lighting lend a touch
of the unexpected to rooms that channel modernism.
It is in Hoi Polloi, however, that Universal has made a complex
combination of materials sing. "We approached the restaurant as a
modern-day Wolseley," explains Holley. "We wanted an atmosphere
of informality yet a sense of occasion, too." In the high-ceilinged,
brasserie-like space, fluted timber-paneled walls combine with
horizontal mirrored panels to create depth; peach leather banquettes
surround flecked linoleum tabletops; and hexagonal timber flooring
shifts to encaustic ceramic tiles. hd
