Architect & Interior Designer

Within Brighton’s New England Quarter we are in the process of completing a new 98 bedroom boutique hotel, forming part of IHG’s growing Hotel Indigo brand.

On the site of former railway coach works and subsequently the Isetta bubble car factory, the hotel design takes inspiration from the local environment and history. Guestroom interiors are finished in three responding styles: Industrial, Bohemian and Cultural, each with their own distinct character and palette of materials.

The hotel includes a new bar and restaurant open for all-day dining to residents and local people alike. Stylistic influences on the design pick up motifs of station rooms, compartmented railway carriages and the contrasting experiences of time between prompt service at the buffet and comfortable time-filling in waiting rooms. From a quick espresso to a full fine-dining menu, all users are catered for.

As part of the same city block development, a new 6-storey office building was also constructed adjoining the hotel.
