Cardiff hotel interior
Sleeperz compact lifestyle hotels are characterised by a high level of design excellence and the distinctive ambience of their city-centre locations. Sleeperz distinguishes itself from the competition by utilising small but stylish rooms on irregular-shaped sites next to mainline railway terminals.
Creactive Design ID worked as interior designers on the first Sleeperz hotel in Cardiff. As part of this process we worked alongside Jamie Buchanan of JBLA to develop the brand through an alluring and functional environment, taking inspiration from clean, functional Scandinavian design to create bespoke furnishings and interior spaces with bold colour and graphic treatments.
Each bedroom is treated as a railway carriage, where all elements are purposely designed to take advantage of the limited space available, whilst adding a quality, reassuring feel to the overall interior design. Careful consideration was given to the layouts using our extensive knowledge of ergonomics and user data to design areas that were comfortable and intuitively arranged. The design and layout was verified through the production of a full size mock-up used to test the elements and layout.
Detailed CAD layouts allowed us to explore the best layouts for all areas including; reception, lounge, dining room, and corridors, in addition to the bedroom designs. Photo-realistic computer renderings enabled us to explore materials and finishes of the interior areas, and together with material sample boards allowed us to easily project our design vision to the client.
Sleeperz Hotel in Cardiff received a RIBA Award in November 2010.
