Inhabit Queen’s Gardens, The Independent

Thrilled to see our project at Inhabit Queen’s Gardens billed as one of “the most exciting hotels opening in the UK and Ireland in 2022”:

When it touched down in 2019, Inhabit Hotels upped the eco bar with its beautiful, environmentally and socially conscious bolthole in London’s Paddington. The brand’s next act is Inhabit Queen’s Gardens, an 159-room hotel inside a crescent of 19th-century townhouses in Bayswater.

The hotel’s offer includes a 70-cover restaurant and bar, lounge, library and wellness area including treatment rooms, a fitness suite and a yoga studio.

The hotel promises a commitment to environmental initiatives and meaningful community partnerships, pledging to work with 100 social enterprises and small, socially-conscious businesses, including an extension of our furniture range collaboration with Goldfinger.

Holland Harvey has worked alongside Caitlin Henderson Design, There’s Light, and art curators Culture A to create a design that blends contemporary Scandi inspiration and Eastern philosophical awareness with quintessential British design. Key design features include a fire surround made by Granby Workshop from waste materials salvaged on site.

For its F&B offering, Inhabit Hotels has collaborated with Marc Francis-Baum, founder of Barworks which includes London venues such as Mare Street Market in Hackney, to create The Kitchen at Inhabit.

During construction, 100% of waste was redirected from landfills, with 59% being recycled or donated via the online platform Globechain.
