"27 boutique rooms provide some of Ealing’s finest accommodation, while the biggest beer garden in London is perfect for dining and drinking."
Concorde BGW were briefed to complete a garden re-design and extensive ground floor refurbishment of one of Ealing's oldest pubs. With 27 existing boutique bedrooms, we were tasked to produce a design that not only attracted new local customers, particularly to the garden in the hot summer months, but also providing a space that was far more welcoming and accommodating to the hotel guests.
Throughout the project we stuck to a punchy colour palette and used bold patterns to inject a new lease of life into what was previously a faded old building. Through the clever use of zoning, we enhanced the service areas and created a cosier atmosphere.
We transformed a heavy reception into a light airy space with the use of classic, warm grey tones and fresh botanical prints. Within the main drawing room we created a sumptuous drinking den steeped in crimson colours, lush velvet-clad chesterfields and quirky colonial style accessories. We added antique mirror panelling, an opulent gold domed ceiling and a modern sputnick light.
Within the two existing bars we exposed an original white brick wall in the saloon bar and opened up a skylight, cladding the surrounding ceiling with reclaimed timbers. Particular design features within the main bar include sulphur lighting, bespoke beer gravity lights and a stunning cantilevered zinc table with a reconditioned vintage fireman’s sprinkler head transformed into a light feature from Revivalist.
