New Hilton takes boutique stance on art prior to launch


The new Hilton Bankside, which is due to launch in just a few week’s time, has taken inspiration from the boutique hotel market for the new artwork on its walls.

In partnership with Twenty2Degrees Design, Dexter Moren Associates has commissioned artwork for the hotel’s 292 bedrooms that makes reference to an urban fox whose footprints were found in the building’s screeds during construction.

The fox artwork appears in guestrooms and is designed to evoke ideas of the urban environment and highlight the way we adapt to it.

The wider design of the bedrooms takes an industrial approach, using exposed surfaces and layering of textures and materials, including concrete effect wall coverings, limed timber and travertine stone.

Project architect Ed Murray says: “Our mischievous hotel visitor is still checking in on site progress, his dusty paw prints were recently spotted in the service yard. Although, he’ll have to continue his adventure elsewhere once the hotel opens in September.”

Dexter Moren Associates have also led the architectural design of the hotel.

Located in London’s colourful Bankside quarter, the hotel gives a nod to the past, present and future of its surrounding area.
