BATH BOUTIQUE HOTEL TO OPEN WITH HARTBRIGHTS WALL ART AND WAYFINDING SIGNAGE
IHG Hotels & Resorts are all set to open the latest hotel under their Hotel Indigo brand later this year. Hotel Indigo Bath combines previously separate Grade I and Grade II-listed houses, built circa 1743-49 and designed by John Wood the Elder, into a boutique hotel offering 166 luxury rooms.
Architects Darling Associates are providing architecture and interior design services. They have commissioned Hartbrights to supply wall art and interior signage for their project.
Each of the 166 bedrooms is themed to reflect the Bath experience and Phase I of the project had us creating some unique wall art for 33 of the rooms.
The artwork reflects the city’s long history and connection with literature and the novelists who helped make Bath famous.
From the Hotel Indigo website:
“…our building is steeped in history and sits in the peaceful street of South Parade, yet you are just steps away from the centre of Bath. Surrounded by culture Bath is famous for romance, literature and historic architecture; our boutique hotel is a great base to explore this wonderful city. Our 166 rooms have been perfectly designed with you and the city in mind. Modern and stylish they reflect the influences of the architects and novelists who made Bath famous for its story telling and passionate social scene. Just a stone’s throw away from the Bath Abbey, Roman Baths and Pultney Bridge, guests can explore the historic sights whilst enjoying the modern day inspirational galleries, street performers, and fantastic array of individual shops. Let us inspire you to walk along the wide Georgian Streets made for carriages up to The Royal Crescent, and after exploring take a relaxing dip in the hot spa waters of the original Roman Baths which give Bath its UNESCO World Heritage status.”
Phase 2 of the project for Hartbrights will involve the production of room number and wayfinding signage, with potential for further work in Phase 3. We’ll blog about this in the very near future.
