Newmarket Hotel – IDEA 2020

Newmarket Hotel

The design keeps alive the ‘social’, ‘local’ ideas of the traditional hotel, with a series of spaces that are communal and intimate, formal and informal. The old building fabric is retained to provide an understanding of past histories. Second hand brick sits alongside travertine, while timber and brass inlay accompanies steel trowel slab to give robust materials a delicate edge. A long strip of wallpaper is an exact replica of an older version, discovered in the demolition stage.
