Blending a unique style with business like functionality, Novotel London Heathrow Airport has proved to be the perfect flagship location for the Novotel brand, and a popular destination since opening in 2018.
Owned and operated by Nine Hotel Group, the former office block was transformed by the team at Koncept ID, an award-winning Interior Design practice in Manchester that specialise in the delivery of interior design projects for the hospitality and leisure market.
Responsible from concept, through to implementation and scheme compliance, Koncept ID took inspiration from the hotel’s airport neighbour, using air and sky as a starting point to flood the space with light in order to create a warm and homely feel.
In addition to 166 bedrooms, the hotel also is home to a restaurant and bar, a fitness centre, 2 meeting rooms and a self-service business centre. The hotel also does away with the traditional check -in desk, utilising informal seating areas and a mobile app.
Featuring various architectural structures, dynamic curved installations and a diverse array of material finishes, the interior of the hotel is decorated with style and comfort in mind, providing a home-from-home for business and pleasure passengers alike.
The light and bright atrium features an evocative mix of patterned, concrete and wood tiles
Cosy open fire pits, lush botanical chandeliers, metallic elements and eclectic furniture pieces come together to create a memorable hospitality experience, all complemented by an array of tiles from Solus.
Raw and rustic concrete effect tiles from the recognisable Replicate range feature widely throughout the atrium, social and restaurant areas, with various shades used to bring a different mood to each space. Wood finishes are used in many aspects of the design, which is also echoed in the tile selection.
Tiles from the Nordica range were used carefully throughout the project, breaking up the vast concrete floor designs, whilst complementary metallic trim pieces add a sense of luxurious flair.
The warm and rustic ambience of the lounge area features a melodious array of wood and concrete finishes
A complex project that required vast quantities of material and specialised tile cuts, Novotel London Heathrow Airport exudes the quality, style and luxury of a top city hotel, demonstrating a level of ambition not often seen in typical airport hotels.
