Botanical Hotel

Project Description

Our design Ethos was to reinterpret the relationship between the different spaces and create a timeless interior design that was neither funky nor too fashionable” Adrian Downes. To restore an iconic venue to its former glory, the aim has been to create a standout all day dining venue with some serious pub credentials, so that the primary focus is a top quality and inventive dining experience within a pub. The whole building has been opened up so from the front door there is a clear line of site through to the rear fireplace and conservatory area. The aesthetic is a simple but rich palette of finishes with consistency between areas. Dark timbers, are offset by black steel, pressed glass light fittings and pale walls. Warm leather and richer tones create intimacy in the dining room whilst the Archer room is lighter and brighter with an outdoor feel. The rear main bar is robust but with strong detail and opens onto a bright terrace area in monochromatic tones. The dark oak floor unifies all areas.
