With its instantly recognisable branding, easyHotel in Belfast required creative use of a wide range of materials to achieve a fun but functional space for this renovation project. Tasked with designing and fitting out various aspects of the hotel, we installed everything from the reception and common areas, to the door sets and connecting café – COF FEE – once our design concept was approved.
Using a variety of high-quality industrial materials, we ultimately created a very polished look and enjoyed experimenting with new ideas, for example, covering the corrugated steel wall cladding with leather. Exposed brickwork contrasts with these more malleable materials, while sterling board offers a versatile alternative for the counters. Thanks to its eclectic composition, this compact space is a feast for the senses and makes clever use of the available footprint. Striking in appearance, the overall simplicity of design means it is practical and easily maintained, while also aesthetically pleasing.
