Andaz

Interiors
 
Conran and Partners have redesigned the 267 guest rooms at Andaz London Liverpool Street in the first major overhaul of the rooms since the practice unveiled their original design twenty years ago when Andaz was known as the ‘Great Eastern Hotel’.

The concept – commissioned by Andaz owners Hyatt – has updated and rejuvenated the rooms, bringing them more in line with the Andaz DNA and the massive changes in the local area on the edge of the City and London’s Shoreditch, whilst keeping its strong original design style. As part of the redesign, Conran and Partners have injected a number of new elements commissioned from local East London artists.

Each guest room has been designed in a ‘residential’ style to encapsulate the welcoming ethos of an Andaz ‘home’. Upon entering a room, guests are greeted with a little black steel shelf for depositing loose objects from their pockets. The extensive timber panelling has been preserved but stained in a more contemporary and crisp black to complement the new palette. A key part of the redesign was reviewing the lighting scheme, which now includes a warm LED dado light and a number of low-level feature light sources.
 
The pinstriped carpet and accentuated stitched ‘jeans’ fabric around the base of the bed is a fun nod to the City of London’s sartorial past, incorporating a side pocket for late-night reading. A large photographer’s lamp by Artisan reinforces the theme of playfulness and creates a warm atmosphere. A tan-leather headboard incorporates one of Sophie’s intricate, printed illustrations reminiscent of tattoo art and a second design printed on the concrete backdrop of the bar area serves as a creative centrepiece for the room.

As part of our wider refurbishment of Andaz Liverpool Street, our founder Sir Terence Conran collaborated with Hyatt and (RED) - the AIDS organization founded by Bono and Bobby Shriver, to design an (ANDAZ)RED Suite with a portion of each booking going directly to support (RED)’s fight to end AIDS. We assisted Sir Terence in realising his design.

Waking up in an Andaz is to know where you are in the world, through an authentic ‘sense of place’ using subtle local touches rather than obvious theming. As a starting point, we looked at how the hotel lies at the ‘gateway’ between the City of London and Shoreditch and have taken many of our references from the very different histories and ‘vibes’ of these two adjacent areas. The palette of materials and colours draws upon some of the traditional, sophisticated and very ‘British’ elements of the City such as the elegance of the tailor-made pinstriped suit, which are reflected in the overall feel of the rooms, the fabrics chosen and the carpet design. It combines these with references to the more gritty quirkiness and unexpected elements of East London such as the use of tattoo art and the incorporation of concrete in the rooms.
