The concept for the Alex hotel was for an 'independent traveller' hotel - specific to its site and location, as distinct from a global chain. The emphasis is on the experience - of the place and of a particular kind of hospitality that sets it apart from other hotels. The finishes are deliberately kept as raw as possible with exposed pipework and off-form concrete soffits. In contrast, the interior styling and furniture by Arent&Pyke is eclectic, fun, quirky and provides many ways to inhabit the hotel living areas.
