The hotel design team at Jestico + Whiles has been crowned the winner of the Independent Hotel Show’s annual Hub design competition.
The champion entry for 2015 was submitted by Daniel Bryan-Harris and Amal Yusuf, who both work for the London-based architecture and interior design practice.
The firm has a global reputation for designing some of the world’s most prestigious hotels including W Hotel London, Andels Lodz in Poland, the Yas Hotel in Abu Dhabi and the recently completed Hard Rock Hotel in Ibiza.
Andrew Linwood, head of design at Areen Hospitality and a member of the judging panel, said: “Jestico + Whiles had the most interesting and well-presented design. It starts with a strong narrative concept — the whimsical relationship between the British and their weather — which is clearly extrapolated throughout the various major design elements: umbrellas, rain projections etc.”
Visitors to the Independent Hotel Show, which is held at Olympia West on 20 and 21 October, will be able to see Jestico + While’s vision for The Hub brought to life.
The annual Hub design competition offers the leading lights in the sector a chance to showcase their vision and expertise in the creation and design of The Hub, a key feature area of the show.
