Andaz
Hyatt
Interiors
 
Conran and Partners has 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’.

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 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, we 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’. The extensive timber panelling has been preserved but stained in a more contemporary crisp black style 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 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.

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 the ANDA )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.
