From Pearly Kings and Queens to the rich history of the textile and tea trade, the Clayton Hotel’s eclectic interior design is a nostalgic nod to the surrounding East End neighbourhood.
To support the balance between the locally influenced yet contemporary interiors, the lighting design scheme is a mix of decorative pendants and integrated details.
Be it coffee or cocktails, brunch or dinner… or grabbing a few hours to do some work (the hotel is a stone’s throw from the City), the ground floor café, bar and restaurant provide ideal spots for locals as well as guests. Open from early morning until late at night, the lighting can be modified via a control system to suit the time of day. Decorative pendants and a feature installation create an intimate atmosphere at night, and integrated lighting in the bar adds a contemporary feel.
The use of decorative pendant lights continues in the top floor bedroom suites, giving the stylish apartments a homely feel. It was also important to create a sense of space within the suites and this was achieved through uplit coffers that visually open up and elevate the rooms.
