The Biophilic Office Project

There is a wealth of evidence to suggest that, by incorporating biophilic design into our built environments, we can increase our health and wellbeing. Biophilic design acknowledges that we are instinctively connected to nature and that, through exploring this connection within the spaces that we live, relax and work in, we can positively influence our physical and psychological health. Oliver Heath, Director of Oliver Heath Designs, knows his stuff.

Fettle work in collaboration with Ennismore to design The Hoxton Portland

Fettle has worked in collaboration with Ennismore to design The Hoxton Portland, the sixth hotel in The Hoxton portfolio, located on the site of a former 1920s theatre in the US city’s historic Chinatown. Fettle was appointed to design the public areas of the hotel, including the restaurant, cocktail bar, lobby, apartment-style meeting space and coffee shop.

Ennismore Design Studio completed the design of the bedrooms, rooftop bar and basement.

The hotel is a combination of a 1920s theatre and a new build tower, which houses the hotel rooms. The older part of the hotel features heavily textured wooden columns, old plaster finishes and simple cement board wall cladding, sitting in contrast with the clean and industrial newer building – the combination underpinning the Hoxton Hotel House style.

The architectural palette of the hotel is subdued and natural. Half-century old timber columns reference the industrial nature of the city, with colourful mid-century seating and patterned Robert Allen fabrics reflecting the city’s vibrant arts and cultural scene. The overall feeling is one of warmth and homeliness, generated by the layering of different textured materials and lighting designs. 

Tom Parker, Founding Partner of Fettle, commented: ‘When approaching the design, we took inspiration from the city’s rich history as well as its current diverse culture and wanted to marry the old and the new parts of the building together. We have created a space which really tells the story of its location and one which we hope guests will feel inspired as well as comfortable. The Hoxton Portland marks our second major project in the USA, and we are really proud of the finished result.’

Fettle’s studios in London and Los Angeles work collaboratively across all projects, which include the Marylebone Hotel London, The Draycott in Los Angeles and the Hoxton Hotel Portland.
