Scott Brownrigg, Willmott Dixon Interiors win design award for Shaded White Room
The Shaded White room, created by Scott Brownrigg and Willmott Dixon Interiors, has received the Best Room Design award at Sleep Hotel 2012.
Entrusted with designing a 23 square metre, five-star, city centre hotel room, which pushes the boundaries of imagination, innovation and creative flair, the luxuriously-designed Shaded White room hotel won the honours.
The Shaded White room was aimed at creating a timeless room where the design would transcend trends and offer effortless elegance in future. A mountainous city view provides the focal point and inspiration for the room’s decor, with the room featuring a luxurious raised bed for the guests to experience the view.
The mountain inspiration continues to the bathroom and shower, which has clean, simple lines, a surround-sound system and natural daylight that infiltrates through the raised glass panels. The bathroom and wardrobe have been cleverly planned and designed to not only offer basic necessities to the guests, but also create the quality and feel of a five-star bathroom within a very limited space.
Shaded White offers state–of-the-art technology in an innovative manner. The Crestron system provides integration with in-wall and freestanding iPads, enabling the tech-savvy guest to control lighting levels, blinds and the entertainment system from any part of the room. The system also allows the guest to contact the front desk to book spa treatments or transportation. In addition a simple, user-friendly control pad offers the same service in a more conventional and traditional manner.
The Crestron solution also offers energy-efficient solutions to the hotel as it can detect when the room is in use. When no one is in the room, lights and entertainment systems shut off automatically.
Intelligent forms of storage have also been featured in the room to de-clutter the space because of its size. This has been achieved through the elevation of both the bed and the window seat to provide storage underneath.
