The Challenge

One Blackfriars (AKA Bankside), an independent hotel in the culturally vibrant South Bank London, is a social hub for anyone with a passion for culture, art and food.

This intimate hotel, with 161 bedrooms including seven suites, feels like home thanks to the use of hand-picked furnishings, specially-commissioned artworks and friendly, intelligent service.

Lines are blurred between work and play, with social spaces providing an inspirational environment for a dynamic guest experience. These include Art Yard Bar & Kitchen, a library and an outside terrace. There are four meeting & event spaces including Whitebox; a blank canvas for guests to create their own setting. This unique venue, therefore deserved sublime attention to detail in every fixture and fitting.

Our Approach

The Fitzroy of London team worked closely with an interior designer from America – Powerstrip Studio – to create sumptuous accessible fittings in a matching finish to the Gessi 716 finish specified.

The products are removable, giving superb adaptability options for the hotel owners, and were selected from our Gosfield collection.
