Arrive at London’s first hometel and step into a building inspired by the spirit of Chiswick’s community and influence in the Arts & Craft movement.
Arts & crafts was a rebellion against the homogenization of design & mass production, and our spaces intend to be a reflection of this while championing our local artists and craftsmen. Stepping back from the highly polished terrazzo dreamscapes of the hotel industry; we have created something that feels real to the touch with a sense of connection to craftsmanship. All our rooms and common areas are fitted with bespoke handcrafted pieces from a range of local artists, designers, and skilled craftsmen.
An artist and furniture maker based in South East London, working primarily in sustainably grown English timber and using techniques rooted in historical craft. Describing himself as a collector, Kieran draws upon found objects and coastal forms as a basis for his work. His Dali-esque mirrors add a playful touch to our bathrooms and lifts.
Turner Prize winners Granby Workshop’s iconic Super blue vitrified ceramic tiles were developed for their installation at the 16th International Architecture Exhibition - Venice Biennale however you will find them throughout our bathrooms. You may notice the edges that are left exposed to show the depth of the veining running through tiles and no one tile in the entire hotel is the same as another.
Rachel Maiden produced the handmade marbled prints which you will notice in our rooms and shared spaces. We have turned this marble print into wallpaper animating our hometel as well as across other touchpoints throughout your stay.
Having previously worked as a free-lance illustrator, Kent based Petronella established her own award-winning interior design brand. Her desire to create beauty in homes, hotels, restaurants and other environments brings her constant inspiration and encouraged us to work together to create a 100% bespoke design for room2 Chiswick. You may notice her beautiful hand sketched wallpaper, featuring dancing human bodies found in some of guestroom bathrooms.
Playfully combining antique and modern sensibilities, the mirror forms part of the Bobbin collection, where Alfred has selected modern colours in a twist on this historic design lineage. Mirror sides are lathe-turned into ornamental shapes consisting of a series of small knobs resembling spools, or bobbins.
Roberta creates bright, playful, striking prints, inspired by her everyday surroundings and experiences. She has an intense love of colour and classes shapes and negative space just as important as each other. Roberta is always collecting coloured papers and often begins her work by hand collaging; the process of experimentation she finds invaluable. She has recently combined her love of collaging and connecting people by running collage workshops at Pengallery, a not-for-profit shop and art gallery in Poole. She is a local artist living in Hammersmith.
