Holiday Inn Express

The Armouries, Leeds

The hotel is located within the prestigious Clarence Docks, Leeds. The hotel development is one of three buildings forming an edge to a new urban square adjacent to the existing Leeds Armouries Museum. Our response to the Client brief was to design a contemporary hotel with its own individual character. It was very important to us that the design of the hotel interior should relate directly to the hotel external envelope. The use of interlocking and ‘sliding’ linear elements is a key design driver both externally & internally. These are incorporated into the feature wall above the hotel reception as well as within the bespoke carpet designs for all the Public Areas. Two large monolithic room dividers are located within the Bar space. These are sculptural elements with linear slots punched through them creating visual connections and providing opportunities for feature lighting & locations for accessories. These dividers also function to conceal vertical drainage stacks & structural steel columns.
