The Laslett

Design of a boutique hotel situated within five, converted terrace houses in Notting Hill

The Laslett, Pembridge Gardens, Notting Hill, London

The studio was asked by Living Rooms to construct and furnish fifty-two rooms across a terrace of five, interconnecting houses in Notting Hill. With over 22,000 square foot of space to redesign and renovate, this two year project opened its doors to much acclaim in August 2015. The project looks to celebrate and re-explore the characterful and cultural heritage of the area.

We were briefed to create spaces that felt like ‘staying in a friend’s townhouse’. We combined modern British furniture and Portobello finds, placing them in modern rooms of restored stucco elegance. Art and visual cues took influence from shared memories of Notting Hill’s 80’s multicultural identity which was well illustrated in the contemporary Face Magazine. A Lobby, Library, Shop and Restaurant Bar form the public spaces, with an 11 metre long concrete bar providing service across them all..
