Details for the design of the upcoming Malmaison York have been revealed by interior designer Dexter Moren Associates.
Inspired by brutalist architecture and paying homage to the 60s, the new hotel design comprises 150 bedrooms, ground floor reception, lobby lounge, gym and spa.
There is also a signature bar and restaurant created, as well as a rooftop bar overlooking the York skyline.
Within the bedrooms, dark stained maple millwork sits on dark grey marble tiling.
Recycled coconut shell marmoluem lined walls meet part height glazing and amber tinted glass shower enclosures, and tan leather upholstery is punctuated with black metalwork and bronze accents.
Yves Klein blue and burnt orange – key colours of the sixties – are playfully used in the bathrooms and artwork, whilst bold geometric patterns are applied in the wallcovering and fabrics to further bolster the link to the brutalist nature of the architecture.
The new single storey rear extension will be home to the Malmaison ‘Work and Play’ facility, linked to the retained building with bookable meeting pods, dedicated meeting rooms, conference rooms and ballroom with extensive breakout areas, self-service kitchenettes, bar and a Starbucks café.
A dedicated lift will take guests directly to the new rooftop bar.
