Paddington Inn Hotel
Scooped from the centre of the old Paddington Inn Hotel, a central courtyard brings light into what was previously a dark unused zone. Strong structural steel, lined with glass and aluminium elements create a bright yet calm core to the building. The daylit Oxford street bar, connects seamlessly to rear moody evening bar space. Lined with felt acoustic panels, furnished with red leather banquettes, the space; a comfortable lounge, settles you in for the evening. A little nook with an uplit timber stepped ceiling adds a unique fullstop to the space, while a first floor terrace adds another layer of play. The first floor terrace, like the ground floor courtyard uses custom graphics to create an abstract garden notion, juxtaposing the strong geometric form of the supporting structure.
